A familiar person to many of 
us on campus, and a necessary 
one to each and every student is 
Jean Blesh, Dean of Women. 
Located in the administration 
wing, Mrs. Blesh's olTice will be-

Vicki Gathman 
New SGA V. P. 

By Renny M. Connell 
Beachcomber Columnist 

Attractive, articulate Vicki 
Gathman, 18, has been chosen 
by the Executive Council of the 
Student Government Association 
to fill the vacancy left by Ronald 
Simpson in the office of Vice 

Vicki, daughter of Craig A. 
Gathman, chairman of the 
science department here at the 
college, is a sophomore majoring 
in English Literature. She plans 
to attend the University of Flor- 
ida after graduating in June and 
intends to become a college 
teacher, and eventually a writer. 
She is interested in short story 
and novel writing. 

Vicki graduated from Lake 
Worth High in 19()2 where she 
participated in many student ac- 
tivities including the student coun- 
cil and cheerleading. She ran for 
SGA Vice President last spring 
and intends to do so again this 
fall. The election for this olTice, 
as well as all Freshman class 
officers, will be held on October 
18, according to SGA President 
Bruce Ammerman. 

Vicki has many opinions con- 
cerning PB.TC student govern- 
ment including the observation 
that students "just don't care" 
about SGA. She declares that 
more students arc needed to take 
part in activities. "Anyone who 
would like to servo on one of our 
committees is welcome. Just 
come in to the SGA office and 
volunteer." She went on to com- 
ment candidly on last year's SGA 
mess ("OfCicers should be elect- 
ed rather than appointed"), in- 
tercollegiate sports ("Wo won't 
have it here in the near future"), 
the Student Congress ("It will 
meet a lot more than it did last 
year"), and the constitution (It 
has loopholes!). 

The Student Government Asso- 
ciation meets every Thursday at 
3 p.m. in the social science build- 

Dollars for Scholars 

Dean Paul J. Glynn reports 
that the members of the PBJC 
Alumni Association have begun 
extensive plans for the upcoming 
Third Annual Dollars for Scholars 
campaign, which provides schol- 
arships for students. Plans in- 
clude using Alumni, students, and 
news-media in an effort to con- 
tact nearly Vi million Palm Beach 
County residents. 

(Continued on Page 3) 

Religious Emphasis Week is be- 
ing observed through the end of 
this week with a series of lec- 
tures from the many denomina- 
tional groups represented on the 
PBJC campus. 

Utilizing the mid - morning 
breaks for meetings the various 
religious groups have listened to 
speakers and clergy, represent- 
ing the Palm Beach County area. 

In urging students to attend 
these lectures, Dean Glynn re- 
ported that in his past 14 years 
of dealing with students in and 
out of trouble that "the greatest 
number of these (students) in 
serious trouble or having difficul- 
ties adjusting to life, either had 
no church affiliation at all or 
were non-attendants of their 

Registration Totals 
17V2% Increase 

Over Previous Year 

The population boom has affected everything, and Palm Beach 
Junior College is no exception. Edna Wilson, administrative assistant 
has announced that the registration statistics are totaling 1,842 per 
day and 1,292 night students. This is a total of 3,134 a 17%% increase 
over last year's total of 2,703. 

Dean Paul Glynn comments on the increase and says that "Palm 
Beach Junior College will continue to do superior guidance testing 
and counseling with the limited personnel available. Each year there 
is a tremendous growth of students and it is left more and more up 
to the individual to meet requirements for graduation." 

The most important thing is that the student evaluate his status. 
Are they taking the right courses? Do they have a "C" or better 
average in all General Education 

Coltege Showcase 
Returns To Air 

College Showcase returns to 
television on Sunday featuring 
timely interviews with three well- 
known PBJC graduates, Charles 
Willeford, Therese Venable, and 
Burt Reynolds. A part of Chan- 
nel 5's Spotlight on Education 
series, Showcase will appear 
throughout the school yeai' on 
the 1st and 3rd Sunday each 

Charles Willeford, well-known 
novelist who currently has two 
paperbacks on the market, one 
of which, The Machine in Ward 
Eleven, a short story collection, 
received an award as one of the 
best 100 short stories published 
in 1962, and first appeared in 
"Playboy" magazine. The other 
book, entitled Cock Fighters, is 
a full length fiction novel. 

Therese Venable, an art teach- 
er and artist, is in charge of the 
Arts and Crafts program for the 
town of Palm Beach. Some of 
Miss Venable's and her student's 
paintings will be shown on the 

Another PBJC graduate, Burt 
Reynolds, currently appearing in 
Giinsmoke, was recent director 
and lead man in the comedy hit 
play, "Honeymoon Machine", 
which played at the PBJC audi- 
torium. Scenes from the plays, 
television programs and movies 
in which Mr, Reynolds has ap- 
peared will also be featured. 

Josh Crane, speech instructor 
at PBJC will be the television 

courses? Are they taking the 
right pre-professional courses?" 

Dr. Harold C. Manor, president 
of Palm Beach Junior College, 
commented that the new build- 
ings and the jump in registra- 
tion are definitely correlated. 
The new buildihgs will help con- 
siderably but many more are 
needed. There will be a state 
survey to be taken shortly to de- 
termine the exact need for more 
buildings. This will be voted on 
as a State Bond issue November 
5. All registered voters of the 
college are asked to please vote. 

Watch for follow up on state 
bond issue in "Beachcomber". 

From Dean Glynn's office: 
"Students, it is your responsibil- 
ity to keep a constant check on 
all graduation requirements list- 
ed in the current college catalog. 

To graduate you must have an 
overall 2.0 (C) average of all 
work attempted, and a "C" or 
better in all general education 
courses. This includes all previ- 
ous college work at other insti- 

To check with your academic 
counselor as to your pre-profes- 
sional courses required in your 
major field by the senior institu- 
tion you plan to attend after 

To comply with all written 
rules, regulations and policies 
listed in the Student Handbook 
and the college catalog. 

To keep your mailing address 
up to date in the main oflfice as 
well as the Student Personnel Of- 

To read the daily bulletin post- 
ed on. the bulletin boards and to 
comply with whatever informa- 
tion is listed thereon." 

Fees Paid By County 

The Boards of Public Instruc- 
tion of Hendry and Glades coun- 
ties have voted to pay the non- 
district fees due for residents of 
their respective counties at any 
community junior college in 

This will explain the good for- 
tune that befell residents of those 
counties who registered at PBJC 
and did not have to pay the extra 

PBJC Receives Gift Bookshelf 

Dean Paul Glynn recently ac- 
cepted a gift of a bookshelf on 
Judaism on behalf of PBJC, do- 
nated by the Jewish Chautaugua 
society and the Men's Club. 

Rabbi Irving B. Cohen of Tem- 
ple Israel made the presentation 
in hope "that the shelf of books 
will stand as a symbol of our 

partnership and as a reminder of 
our friendship and mutual con- 
cern. These books, we hope, will 
be read for enlightenment and 
understanding, and remain as 
tokens of our pledge of loyalty 
and continuing concern for the 
advancement of knowledge and 

Where you go* tomorrow de- 
pends upon where you go today. 


Further he expressed the opin- 
ion that there are talented men 
in all of these denominations and 
people would be able to gain 
much by listening to the lectures 
even if they were not members 
of the congregations these men 

Student leaders of each regions 
club plus their faculty advisors, 
comprising an interfaith council, 
plan to work with Dean Glynn, co- 
ordinator, to criticize and evalu- 
ate the program in planning next

It is the hope of the college ad- 
ministration that all religious 
f-!ro>ips may have the opportunity 
of LeinjJ lepresented on the col-

Our Noisy Library 

By Robert E. McAllister 
There is, or should be, a time and a place for discussing 
parties, sports, or any extracurricular events not pertaining to 
school work. The time should be either lunch hour or after 
school and the place should definitely not be in the school 
library. Numerous times ambitious students with not only 
the eagerness to learn but also the right to use the library as 
an instrument of learning have been deprived of this great 
tool by those few who wish to use the library as a recreation 
center. The ability to concentrate seriously depends upon 
complete quiet with a minimum of distraction which, to date, 
has been unattainable. Only, through diligent effort and co- 
operation with each other can we as students bring o.ur 
library up to par. As adults, we should be respectful to our 
fellow students who use the library to further their educa- 
tion aiid broaden their knowledge. 

As a solution to the problem, the library should be moni- 
tored in such a way that unnecessary noise or talking on the 
part of the students would result in fair warning of expulsion 
to those who are guilty 'of the offense. Continued unruliness 
would mean their ejection and ultimate withdrawal of their 
privilege to use the library. Some may believe these measures 
to be too stringent, yet how can we attain harmony in a 
matter such as this without law and its strict enforcement? 
The library abounds with knowledge of every form and those 
who seek to take advantage of this knowledge should be 
extended the courtesy of being able to assimilate this knowl- 
edge in peace and quiet. 

By Renny M. Connell 

"The artist and the censor dif- 
fer in this wise: that the first is 
a decent mind in an indecent 
body, and the second is an in- 
decent mind in a decent body." 
This tongue-in-cheek definition of 
a censor was given to us by the 
late great playwright George 
Jean Nathan. Perhaps he was 
right about the purity of the writ- 
er's creation and the narrow- 
mindedness of the censor. Let us 
examine the problem of censor- 

Censorship is defined as the 
suppression of anything that the 
censor finds objectionable. This 
immediately poses a problem. It 
is that not everyone agrees on 
what is objectionable and what 
is not. 

I greatly enjoyed the political 
novels "Nineteen Eighty-Four" 
and "Brave New World," former- 
ly used as textbooks in Freshman 
English. And I think that the 
book now in use, "Darkness At 
Noon," is very good. But there 
are groups in Palm Beach County 
who would like to see all three of 
these books suppressed. They 
say "Nineteen Eighty-Four" is 
immoral, "Brave New World" is 
sacrilegious, and "Darkness At 
Noon" (along with some of the 
PBJC teachers who use it) is 
subversive. This is an example 
of how tastes can differ. 

Therefore, is anyone capable 
to decide what another would 
consider objectionable? Some 
thought that the Frank Smatra 
picture "Man with the Golden 
Arm" was objectionable. It was 
denied the motion picture seal of 
approval. Because of its contro- 
versy it was censored in many 
areas. Regardless of this, it was 
tremendously popular and critic- 
ally acclaimed. 

Censorship can take many 
varied and devious forms. In the 
Soviet Union, even music is cen- 
sored, at ranges, in our country, 
from the moderate control of 
broadcasting by the F. C. C. to 
the blatant banning of some out- 
standing motion pictures by the 
New York and Atlanta Board of 
Censors. On the Atlanta Board,

'Haircuts to Please'" 1 

This year, students seeking job 
placement m either part or full 
time jobs are being exposed to 
a beneficial change. The change 
is the addition of job placement 
cards kept on ffle at all times. 
An applicant is required to give 
name, address, hours available, 
experience and position desired. 
The record is placed in an active 
filing box. 

When the Florida State Em- 
ployment Service or individual 
employers, ranging from as far 
north as Jupiter and as far south 
as Boca Raton call the college 
in quest of assistance, these 
(ards may be referred to immedi- 
ately. The applicant is contacted 
at once and his card is placed in 
an inactive file only upon em- 
ployment. However, if for some 
reason employment should ter- 
minate, his card is not disposed 
of, but is returned to the active 
file. The concept is to serve as 
advantageously and promptly as 
possible in handling the student 

Help is often needed in organ- 
izing a schedule when students 
have financial and academic con- 
flicts. Both- your academic ad- 
visor and the school counselors 
are available to discuss such 
problems. Mr. Moss is the job 
placement counselor for day stu- 
dents. His office is in the student 
Guidance and Testing Center. Mr. 
Cieboter in the Student Personnel 
<st Health Hoom is the person in 
charge tor those who attend eve- 
ning classes. 

Doard m the Student Guidance 
salaries, and hours of jobs ayaU- 

"Roora At the Top" was banned 
as were some innocent and edu- 
cational documentaries in which 
t'^e native girls unfortunately run 
around bare from the waist up. 
Censors occasionally mean well, 
but their judgment is not infalli- 
ble. My point of view is that no 
adult should have to have mo- 
tion pictures previewed for him 
by some censor who knows no 
more about the movie business 
than he does. 

The worst form of censorship 
is that of literature and of the 
press. It is embodied abroad in 
the complete censorship of all 
literature by the Red government 
as evidenced by the suppression 
of Boris Pasternak's "iDr. Zhiv- 
ago," and by our own country's 
ban of "Ulysses," "Lady Chatter- 
ly's Lover," and "Tropic of Can- 
cer." Fortunately these books 
are now available in the United 
States. I say fortunately not be- 
cause they are such great liter- 
ary works, but because the evil 
of their suppression far outweighs 
any evil that these books could 
possibly espouse. 

We must never allow censor- 
ship to run rampant in our coun- 
try. If the entering wedge of 
state censorship of movies were 
allowed in, then soon novels and 
political works and newspapers 
would be censored. Gradually 
we would find ourselves living in 
a totalitarian state, our freedoms 
smothered by a blind, narrow- 
minded Censor who has the power 
to decide what is right for every- 
one else. 

This would be followed by a 
government board that would de- 
cide what the right religion is, 
what the right words are, and 
finally, what the right thoughts 

Censorship when carried to its 
farthest limits, is the ax which 
can hew down the tree of free- 
dom. It is the water of hysteria 
that can quench the torch in the 
hand of liberty. To parphrase 
Jeremiah, if we sow the wind of 
censorship, we shall reap the 
wliirlwind of absolute govern- 
ment control. 

Book Review 

By Peggy Blanchard 


IS HERE? By Pamela Hansford 

Johnson. 247 pp. Scribners. $4.50 

College life was never like this! 

■ At least student college life. In 

this novel by the talented wife 

of author C. P. Snow, the reader 

views college life through the 

eyes of a Visiting Fellow to the 

Center for Advanced Studies of 

a New Hampshire college. 

The subject of this book, termed 
"An American Comedy" is one 
pseudo-intellectual, Matthew 
Pryar. Poor Pryar does not have 
a Dr. to put before his name and 
feels a bit insecure in the pres- 
ence of such people as he finds 
on campus. 

But Matthew soon finds himself 
so engrossed with other things 
that he doesn't even have time 
to feel insecure or to work on his 
project -that of translating the 
works of an obscure modern-day 
English poet into everyday com- 
mon language. 

One of Matthew's new found 
mends is trying to prove Emily 
Dickinson was in need of the serv- 
ices of Alcoholics Anonymous; 
another carries spiders around 
with him in his coat pockets and 
yet another is indeed interested 
m tippling the bottle herself. 

Add to this, Matthew's new 
found ambitions to run "Dear old 
Cobb"— the university site of 
this novel — and you have an in- 
teresting and entertaining look 
at what an English authoress 
thinks of present-day America.

Staff Meets 

The first Galleon staff meeting 
was held Wednesday, September 
11, and was presided over by 
Ellen Bennett, Editor. Basic as- 
signments were given to the pres- 
ent staff members which include: 
Robert Waggoner, layout editor; 
Joan Gossett, copy; Evelyn Horst, 
activities; Don Gilchrest, sports; 
Janet Fox, organizations; and 
Patty Pearce, Maurine Vallin- 
court and Paulette Brooks, class- 
es. Gary Smigiel, Philip Ecker, 
and Bob Bloodworth, photogra- 
phers. Jeff Barton and Sidney 
Eline are ad solicitors. Jack 
Dom is business manager. 

This year more students than 
ever before will receive their 
yearbooks toward the end of the 
summer; when the books come 
out. They will be mailed to the 
student. This year's yearbook 
will include this year's gradua- 
tion pictures rather than last 
year's graduation pictures. 

It was evident that many more 
members could be used, especial- 
ly in the layout field. Any student 
who would like to join the staff 
should apply in the Beachco;,,^er 
office in the Finance building. .,

New Manager 
For Bookstore 

Mr. James Baugher, Director 
of Services, announced this week 
that Mrs. Ruth Brofft has been 
appointed manager of the col- 
lege bookstore. For the past two 
years, Mrs. Brofft has served 
in the position of assistant 
manager. She will now be in 
full charge of the new, larger, 
self-service store. In addition 
to planning the necessary changes 
in moving to the new building, 
Mrs. Brofft will also be working 
with the various Department 
heads in ordering new books for 
future courses. 

Students who remember lines 
stretching to infinity at the begin- 
ning of this semester wUl be 
pleasantly surprised when the 
new building opens. Not only 
will it be approximately 10 times 
larger, but there will be a self- 
service set up with a number, of 
cashiers to check them out. And

Sales Tax Explained 

Notice was received on Sep- 
tember 5 by the Director of Serv- 
ices James Baugher, that changes 
in the tax laws would necessitate 
the addition of a 3% sales tax on 
books sold at the J.C. bookstore. 
Actually, the legislature has 
closed the exemptions of church- 
es and other non-profit institu- 
tions from sales taxes. The sec- 
tion in question was specifically 
expanded to tax school books 
used in junior colleges and insti- 
tutions of higher learning. 

Incidentally, if students who 
bought books without tax on one 
day, then had to pay tax for 
sales the next day are disgruntled 
— they should have the bill the 
bookstore will have. The book- 
store will be responsible to pay 
out to the state all those taxes 
not collected before September 5. 

Anne C. McLaughlin, Fresh- 
man, has been named recipient 
of the Palm Beach County Chap- 
ter of March of Dunes' $400 
scholarship for the school year 

The scholarship was presented 
by Dean Paul Glynn, who is 
chairman of the Pahn Beach 
Chapter. Said Dean Glynn, 
"Anne had an excellent high 
school record and met the neces- 
sary requirements for need." 

Anne is a 1963 graduate of Car- 
dinal Newman. She has been 

very active in the Catholic Youth 
Club, Cardinal Newman LibrEiry 
Club, and was social chairman 
of her 4-H Club for two years. 

During high school, Anne re- 
ceived many honors such as 
the Florida Council award for 
social studies, Latin award, and 
the Cum Laude award. 

Anne is ysing the scholarship 
to study nursing here at PBJC. 
She is employed part-time by the 
Liggett Drugstore in the South- 
dale Shopping Center.

l-R Rules and 
Regs Announced 

In a few weeks, Intramural 
Sports will be hitting the campus 
once again. Along with the smiles 
of a win and dismay of a loss, 
there are a few rules and regula- 
tions that must be adhered to by 
the participants of the Intramural 

These rules are not many, but 
they are all important. Student 
fees must be paid, but students 
with medical waivers will not be 
permitted to participate. Special 
students who pay the student ac- 
tivity fee may become eligible 
for any sport on the Intramural 
Sports schedule. 

The uniform for these activities 
is appropriate dress excluding 
bathing suits and dresswear. 
Shoes must be worn on all occas- 
sions for safety purposes. The 
dressing room facilities will be 
at the disposal of the participat- 
ing players.

held Thursday, Sepueinber 26, 
during the 10 o'clock break in the

will be made to place them on a 
team roster. 

All team captains or represen- 
tatives must also attend this or- 
ganizational meeting or their 
team roster will be dropped and 
they will be unable to play. 

Copies of the flag tag rules and 
eligibility rules are also available

Officials Clinic Held 

On Tuesday and Wednesday, 
September 24 and 25, at 3:45 
p.m., a coaches and officials 
clinic will be held in the men's 
dressing room. 

The main purpose of this clinic 
will be to acquaint the officials 
and coaches with the rules, inter- 
pretation and mechanics of of- 

Anyone interested in officiating 
the Flag Tag football games and 
players from the different teams 
who wish to attend are welcome 
at these meetings. 

Last year with good officiating 
at the flag tag games, injuries 
were held to a minimum. Proper 
officiating cut down the misinter- 
pretation of rules and helped 
speed up the game. 

The three instructors for this 
clinic will be Mr. King, Mr. Bell 
and Mr. McGirt. 

Rifle Club Forms 

Notice to gun-toters, sharp 
shooters, and big game hnnters! 

A new organization, called the 
Rifle Club is forming at PBJC 
under the supervision of Mr.

male and female students. Those 
wishing to join should contact 
Mr. Rader in room 20-A of the

That's right, a real-live, gut- 
plucking Hootenany. A newly 
formed group, the Riveras will 
host the first Palm Beach Junior 
College sing along, October 10, 
between 4 and 7 p.m. in the gym. 

This Hootenany will be followed 
By-a dinner sponsored by the In- 
tramural and Recreational Board. 

The Riveras were first intro- 
duced on the Tony Glenn show, 
"Let's Dance." "Tina", origin- 
ally from Greenwich Village, 
New York, has what might be 
called "surfer girl" background; 
she developed her folkstyle by 
singing with friends on the beach. 
Bob Batter on the drams (some- 
thing suggested by Tony Glenn) 
and Dennis Atkinson m the guitar 
complete the group. They are 

local youth. The Riveras hosted 
a Boca Raton Hootenany a few 
weeks ago and were a smash suc- 
cess. This by the" way, was their 
first South Florida Hootenany. 

All students who have paid their 
activities fee are welcome to at- 
tend, and dress is informal. Addi- 
tional tickets may be purchased 
in the Finance Office for $1.00. 









Tochiy I begin my tcutli year of writing tlii.s cohnnn in your

remarkable tiiat tlie Honians had sucii a word tu^dcccuin wlicu 
you consider that siiips did not until 1()2() when Jolui 
Alden invented tlio Mayflower. Aklen, a iirodigiously iuKCMiious 
man, also invented tiie ear loLie and Pocaliontas. 

Ships were a very popular mode of travel —esjiecially over 
water— until 1912 wlien the Swede, Iviir KrucKcr, invented the

lighting your Marlboro Cigarettes, for Marlboro Cigareit.tcs, 
unlightcd, ])rovide, at best, only limited smoking jilcasurt*. 

fjti mhtdtn Ccdlit tttihfor^pusi^dl 

I mention Marlboro.s because this colunui is an 
ment, lirought to you through the school year liy the makers 
of Marlboros. MarlboroK come in .soft [jack o\ Flip-To]) Ixix. 
The makers of Marlboro.s come in dark suit.s with thin lapels 
— excejjt on weekends when they conio in yoke-nock j(-rnoys 
and white duck trousers. White ducks come in flocks. Thoy iire 
primarily fresh wtitcr dwellers, although they have bceii' Kne- 
cassfully raised in salt water too. Another .salt water denizon 
I'm sure you will find enjoyable Im i)hinkton--a mesa of tiny 
organisms like diatoms and algae and like that which floa't 
sluggishly near the surface of the .sea. It i.s ironic that tliese 
creatures, mieroscoinc in size, should supi)ly the printiipal 
source of food for the earth's largest animal, the whale. Whales, 
I say, are not at all pleased with this arrangement, he- it takes the average whale, eating steadily, 48 liourH to 
gather a day's meal. This leaves them almost no Umo for 
water sports or reading Melville. It i,s a lucky thing for all of 
us that whales are unaware they are matiunals, not fish, and 
could, if they tried, live just as well on land as in wator. I 
mean, you add ten or twelve million whales to our Sunday 
traffic and you would have congestion that makes the mind 

But I digress. Today, I was saying, I begin my tenth yetir of 
writing this column for Marlboro Cigarettes in your campus 
newspaper. I will, in each column, say a few kind" words about 
Marlboros-just as you will, once you try that fine tol)acco 
flavor, that pristine white filter, that supple soft pack, that 
infrangible Flip-Top box. These references to Marllioro will be 
brief and unobtrusive, for I do not believe in the hard sell. 
What I favor is .the soft sell-you might even call it the limj) 
or spongy sell. I hasten to state that the makers of Marlboro 
m ten full years have not once complained about my desultory 
sales approach. Neither have they paid me. 

But that is of small consequence. Aside from fleeting mentions 
of MarlEoro, this column has another, and more urgent, mission- 
to cast tlie hot white light of free inquiry upon tlie vexing 
questions that trouble college America— questions like "Should 
the Student Council have the power to levy tariffs'? and "Arc 
roommates sanitary?" and "Should housemothers be com- 
pelled to retire upon reaching the age of 26?" 

Perhaps, reasoning together, we can find the answers. P^ 
Imps not. But if we fail, let it never be .said tliat it was 
want of trying. 
I thank you. 

* * * 

The makers of Marlboro are happy to bring you another 
year of Max Shulman's unpredictable and uncensored col- 
umn—and also happy to bring you fine filtered Marlboros, 
available in pack or box, wherever cigarettes are sold in all 
50 states.

Hootenanny Coming 
Riveras To Perform 

Palm Beach .funior College's 
first all-school Hootenanny comes 
next Thursday, Oct. 10. The 
Hootenanny is sponsored by the 
Intraneural and Recreation (I and 
R) Board. 

Singing starts at 4 P.M. with 
the talented Riveras performing 
first. The trio is composed of 
two local boys, Bob Batter on 
drums, and Dennis Atkinson on 
the guitar, and "Tina," a vocalist 
from New York's Greenwich Vil- 
lage. At six o'clock dinner will 
be served, and the New Coach- 
men, a group of PBJC boys, will 
do the entertaining. 

Sign-up started Monday, Sept. 

30, during the ten o'clock break , 
at the booth in the hall^¥ay West 
of the lounge. Last day for sign- 
up is Wednesday, Oct. 9. Students 
must bring their I.D. cards in 
order to sign up. Additional 
tickets may be obtained in the 
finance office for one dollar. 

Tony Glenn, TV personality 
with WPTV, Channel 5, who was 
in charge of contacting the Ri- 
veras' manager, received re- 
peated requests from the 'Comber 
office and those in charge of the 
Hootenanny for a picture of the 
group, to no avail. So, come 
Thursday and be surprised. 

Phi Rho Pi Taps 
New Members 

PBJC's Florida Alpha Chapter 
of Phi Rho Pi pledged 19 students 
at special rites on Sept. 27 in the 

Lee Ballard, president, an- 
nounced t h e following new 
pledges: Vincent Dallas, Bob Ly- 
diard, Renny ConneU, Mark 
Hiers, Florence Leonard, Ted 
Culpepper, Cheryl Paccione, 
Betty Wesser, Terry Kane, Roy 
Long, Elsie Welch, Susan Lowery, 
Nancy Grahm, Gail Masonic, 
Denny McDonald, Bob Stone, 
Adrena Williams, Janice Griffin, 
and Ron Hampton. 

These students were chosen for 
their outstanding work in speech 
and drama classes and for theu- 
outstanding contributions to extra- 
curricular speech activities. 



The "Dollars for Scholars" 
drive will expand this year 
through the combined efforts of 
the Alumni Association and the 
Post-Times. Conducted annually, 
the drive is an attempt 'to raise 
money for work scholarships 
available to needy students of 

Starting Oct. 10, newsboys of 
the Post-Times will distribute 
some 85,000 contribution enve- 
lopes to residents of Palm Beach 
County as they make their reg- 
ular rounds. A full-page ad spon- 
sored by Bev Smith will appear 
in the Sunday Post-Times to ex- 
plain the drive and its purpose. 

The following Monday the news- 
boys will make their rounds again 
to collect the envelopes they 
passed out. If no member of the 
family is at home, they will be 
called on the next day. A $200 
scholarship will be given to the 
newsboy raising the most "Schol- 
ar Dollars." 

Members of the Alumni Asso- 
ciation will call on organizations 
and civic clubs in the Palm Beach 
area between Oct. 16 and Oct. 
26th, the same time PBJC stu- 
dents will be contacting business 

Students of PBJC will be given 
contribution envelopes and asked 
to take them home to collect a 
dollar or two from their parents. 
. If each student were to bring 
back just one dollar a total of 
$1,846 could be raised. 

These scholarships will not be 
ahned at the "A student," but 
instead awarded as work schol- 
arships to the "C+ and B— stu- 
dent" who can thus render serv- 
ices to himself and the college. 
Last year 20 scholarships were 
given out and 15 students are 
working on these scholarships 

Help in the drive is being pro- 
vided by Josh Crane, who is fea- 
turing "Dollai-s for Scholars" on 
CoUege Showcase. Cooperating 
in getting the drive underway are 
Hal Allen, Editor; and Cecil 
Kelley, Publisher, both of the

Picnic Area 
To Be Built 
On JC Campus 

Bruce Ammerman, SGA pres- 
ident, announced a picnic and 
recreation area will be built on 
the northeast corner of the cam- 
pus adjacent to the water in the 
near future. 

Tentative plans are set by the 
SGA to include about ten table 
and bench sets, several small 
barbecue pits, and a large bar- 
becue pit. Soon afterwards a 
terrazzo dance floor surrounded 
by a concrete patio will be added. 

Future plans include the addi- 
tion of rest rooms, a boat ramp, 
tennis courts, handball courts, 
permanent horseshoe courts, a 
par 3, three-hole golf course, hard- 
stand badminton courts, and hard- 
stand volleyball courts. 

Day students may use the area 
for studying or eatmg lunch. 
Other groups will be using the 
small barbecue pits for mformal 
gatherings. When the large bar- 
becue pit and terrazzo dance 
floor are complete, activities such 
as last year's "Beach-a-que" can 
be held right on campus.

A Time For Decision 

That foolish time of the year is here again. Initiation and 
all its chaos will rfeign supreme in the student lounge. 

What, I ask you, is more foolish than the sight of a grown 
man pushing a peanut across the floor with his nose - or a 
line of female jumping beans weaving their way throughout 
the room -or a pack of pledgees chanting like a tribe of 
aborigines at a war council? 

The social clubs of PBJC, to our knowledge, are supposed 
to provide social activities and leisure fun, but they are going 
too far when through initiation tactics they give the campus 
the appearance of a kindergarten recess period. 

We are not opposed to having social clubs on our campus, 
nor are we opposed to the idea of initiation as such, but we 
cannot condone the immature actions demanded of the 
pledgees of the clubs involved. After seeing future members 
in such ridiculous circumstances and belittling them to the 
point of mortification, we cannot understand how the members 
can accept the prospective "sisters and brothers" as mature 

Therefore it is our proposal that a more mature and con- 
servative method of choosing members come into use. Perhaps 
a system of initiation could be devised in such a way that it 
will benefit both the students and the campus. The next few 
weeks are crucial times for PBJC, Nothing should be done to 
jeopardize the bond issue. The future of our building plans 
are at stake. It would be a tragedy if the entire student body 
were to be judged by the actions of a few. 

Traffic Troubles 
Unlimited Here! 


Students! How many of you 
are late for morning classes? 
How many of you have to wait 
behind a long line of cars while 
the traffic light turns red, greeij, 
and yellow seven times? How 
many of you are tired of waiting 
a half-hour just to get your car 
off campus? This situation, or 
more familiar "traffic jam" oc- 
curs four times within an aver- 
age school day here at PBJC— - 
8:00 A.M., 3:30 P.M., .7:00 P.M., 
and 10:00 P.M. Is this to go on? 
Are our grades to be needlessly 
cut again and again because of 
traffic tie-ups? 

PBJC needs more roads out! 
One extending from the North 
student parking lot to Lucerne 
Avenue would remedy conditions 
a great deal and that way stu- 
dents would not be forced to wait 
behind an endless line in order to 
turn one corner. Also, if the 
roads now leading from PBJC 
to Congress Avenue were widened 
or made into two lanes a swifter 
flow of traffic would become real- 
ity. And how about the student 
parking lots! The roads are so 
narrow, one can hardly turn a 
corner without scraping bumpers 
with every car parked. So instead 
of late classes, endless waiting,

to accept Christ's way as our own

Mentioning The Word "SEX" 

By Ron Johnson 



Religious Emphasis Week was 
observed here at Palm Beach Ju- 
nior College, September 16-20, 
1963. Each individual religious 
organization planned its own 
meetings. The results, in attend- 
ance, of Religious Emphasis 
Week were not good, but those 
who attended were highly inspired 
and enriched by the fellowship 
and inspiration of worshipping 
together. Every day they live 
may their lives continue to Shine 
for Jesus and may this campus 
see the great change in their lives 
because of that closer walk with 

Here are a few comments con- 
cerning Religious Emphasis Week 
made by the different organiza- 

The Lutheran Group: Mr. Al- 

"There is more to a college 
education than the knowledge ob- 
tained from books. You .should 
also strive to improve your skills 
in your social, moral, and reli- 
gious life. There were few par- 
ticipants in the school's Religious 
Emphasis Week. Does this imply 
that most of you have learned 
all that is necessary for a full 
religious life?" 

The Canterbury Club-Episcopal 
Group: Barbara Bullock. 

"For the first week we had a 
different speaker each day with 
informal discussion on the beliefs 
of our church, the traditions, etc. 
in our services. Our average at- 
tendance for the week was around 
twelve. Our sponsor was Father 
Watson of St. Andrew's Episcopal 

Catholic Students: Miss Bianca- 

"Average attendance was 
around 35-40. We had some very 
interesting speakers and we felt 
that the students who attended 
were highly inspired by their 
fellowship with one another. It 
gave them a chance to learn 
about the Newman Club and the 
Newman Center." 

Jewish Fellowship: Mr. Kirsh- 

"This was the beginning of an 
attempt, a step in the right direc- 
tion for a week of inspiration and 
fellowship for our students. More 
planning and more interest among 
college students will make this 
week what it ought to be. Our 
average attendance was eight. 
Our two si)(\Tl<c'rs woic Rabbi I 

spolte from the sar 
eral topic: 'Heligion and its im- 
pact on the young adult.' " 

Christian Science; Mrs. "Dooley. 

"I thought it had a very happy 

beginning. Some way should be 

found to impress each student 

Vi^ith. the importance of belonging 

to and being active in his college 

It has often been said that if 
one wants to draw attention all 
he has to do is mention the word 
"Sex" and great groups of eyes 
and ears will converge. I have 
no intention, at least this early 
in the year, to draw attention to 
this column by writing on such 
a touchy subject even though it 
makes for a real "gangbuster" 
of a column. Fof sure I am not 
about to turn in my PBJC sweat- 
shirt just when I'm getting 

Being new to Palm Beach Jun- 
ior College and having notr- yet 
cracked the local "high school- 
carried to college" cliques per- 
haps I should introduce myself. 
I am a Sophomore (socially). 
That's the way you should put 
it when, by an error on the part 
of an I.B.M. machine, you flunk 
a course in your Freshman year 
and hourly wise you ai'e still a 
freshman when you start your 
second year. I am a "snowbird" 
from Philadelphia. I love peanut 
and butter sandwiches with pea- 
nut butter on all four sides of 
the bread and can't stand college 
girls with pierced ears. I am 
writing this column for three rea- 
1) I like to write about the ex- 
pressions and views of the 
"thinking" student in col-

3) I like good grades. 

I will attempt to produce in 
print the thoughts, whims, views 
expressions, and opinions of the 
students. I will not carry on cam 
Paigns, i.e We want t^ 
bermudas to "^fass owlets TJ 
the student body president (by' 

the way, who is he?). Cam- 
paigns, through the college news- 
paper, carry about as much 
weight as the student who tried 
to convince his instructor that he 
really meant to put letter "A" 
instead of letter "B" on his final 

It is very possible that I will 
write something that might anger 
the "thinking" student. One can't' 
satisfy everyone. If this be the 
case, letters and comments will 
be welcomed but not printed (un- 
less they are in a form of praise). 
However, I do detest libel suits. 
Surely, this column will never 
attempt to "heat up the coals" 
for rebellious riots against so- 
ciety or administration. College 
newspaper columns have been 
known to do just that. At Prince- 
ton last year a column instigated 
a riot (a very intellectual riot) 
that cost every freshman a bill 
or two to cover what the admin- 
istration termed "riot fees". At 
Washington State a column 
brought about a tremendous 
snowball barrage on the Presi- 
dents home because Christmas 
vacation did not begin until De- 
cember 23rd. 

You might be questioning the 
column title "The Cellar Door". 
The title certainly does not mean 
to imply that I am connected with 
Ihe underworld.^ What-Uiavo ttTl 
say will be strictly on the level, J 
The ridiculous truth of the mat- 
ter is I once read that the 
French think the words "cellar" 
and "door" were the two most 
forceful sounding words in the 
English vocabulary. 

I want this column to be just 
plain forceful, 

Bond Issue Is Vital To 
States Higher Education 

America has come a long way since 1776. We have developed 
magnificently, both scientifically and culturally, and have led the 
world in many achievements, but there is no reason to stop now. 
Even though our nation appears to be prosperous today, many fac- 
tors which can pull us down with little or no advance warning are 
present. It is uo to us, as Americans, to prevent any occurrence 
that would be detrimental to our welfare as a nation. Our greatest 
safeguard against these problems which confront our security is 
education, without which our future freedom can only be insecure. 
You and I and every registered voter have the opportunity to im- 
prove Florida's educational system by voting "YES" for issue num- 
ber two on November 5th. 

Palm Beach Junior College is 
a training institution devoted to 
improving young minds in the 
Arts and Sciences and producing 
better informed citizens who will 
be our future leaders. Our col- 
lege is like many other colleges 
in Florida and in the United 
States in the respect that it needs 
more buildings because of con- 
tinuing growth. We are growing 
simply because with the popu- 
lation explosion in today's United 
States there are proportionately 
more students in college than 
ever before and more to come. 

The space age is reality, a 
statement often made by news- 
papermen and philosophers alike, 
not only in a terrestrial sense, but 
also from the educational stand- 
point. We must have more class- 
rooms in which to educate our 
young people, for they are the 
leaders of tomorrow. 

New buildings and classrooms 
cost money, and explaming to the 
citizens that taxes must be in- 
creased is no easy task. This is 
the outstanduig aspect of issue 
number two. Palm Beach Junior 
College will receive $2,800,000 of 
building funds and not a penny 
of it wUl come from individual 
taxation. How can this be done? 
By amending article 12 of the 
Florida State Constitution which 
will, if approved by the voters, 
permit the issuance of bonds. In 
this blennium, not more than 
$75,000,000 worth of bonds could 
be issued by the state, not more 
than $50,000,000 worth in the 1965- 
67 biennium and not more than 
$10,000,000 worth in succeeding 
bienniums with a total limit of 

In addition to these practical 
limits, all building projects paid 
for by these bonds must have the 
approval of three-fifths of both 
state legislative houses. The in- 
terest rate cannot be more than 
4% per cent per year and the 
bonds cannot be sold for less than 
98 per cent of their par value. 
The bonds would be secured and 
retired with the income stemming 
from the public utilities tax. 

The success of this form of 
taxation can clearly be seen by 
reviewing the 1962-63 fiscal year 
when it provided $10,092,378 m 
revenue which would support a 
bond program of $125,000,000. 
Therefore these funds when used 
for college buUdmgs would not 
raise taxes. 

The entire plan is actually on 
an installment basis which should 
be approached with caution, but 
Florida is gaining taxpayers m 
the form of citizens and industry 
instead of losing them so there 
is no reason for alarm. 

The best reason for amending 
article 12 with your vote is sim- 
ply that the more wft educate 
our citizens, the better their jobs 
will be and m proportion the 
highe^^their incomes. Educated 
people' attract mdustry and in- 
dustry means prosperity. 

There is but .one alternative if 
issue two fails, to pass on Novem- 
ber 5th and that is to call upon 
the state legislature to find aoai- 
tional sources for-taxation so tot 
these buildings may be toancea. 
VWe must have these buildings 
and we must have them now. 
Every moment we waste means 
higher buQding cost since costs 
are on the increase every day.. 
To invest in your future, and most 
important, the future of your chil- 
^en Vote "Yes" for issue num- 

Dental Hygiene 
Services Offered 

Do you think you know all the 
pretty, vivacious females on cam- 
pus? Well, you have missed some 
mighty pert girls if you have not 
met all 38 freshmen and 35 soph- 
omores in the Dental Hygiene pro- 
gram. And NOW is the time to 
get acquainted with them, as they 
are a busy group on and off 

Their full schedules center in 
the new Dental Hygiene Building 
in the NW section of the campus, 
where the freshman girls are 
being instructed in the basics of 
dental hygiene, as well as anat- 
omy and physiology of the body 
and teeth, oral hygiene, chem- 
istry, English and physical edu- 
cation. To prepare them for 
clinical practice later in the 
semester, they spend six hours 
a week practicing with instru- 
ments on manikins. On top of 
this rigorous program the girls 
manage to be active in social 
clubs, student government, and 
intra-mural sporfJ!. 

The sophomore class, delves 
into the more detailed aspects of 
dental hygiene, studying such 
courses as pathology, nutrition, 
public health dentistry, practice 
administration, psychology and 
physical education. The most im- 
portant facet of their training is 
the practical application of their 
knowledge m the Dental Hygiene 
Clinic. These giris spend 14 hours 
a week in the clinic performing 
dental hygiene services for pa- 

These dental services include 
a complete cleaning and polish- 
ing of the teeth, oral hygiene 
instruction, and a free toothbrush 
and toothpaste. There is a charge 
of 50c for students and $1.00 for 
adults. You can make an ap- 
pomtment on Monday and 
Wednesday afternoons from 12:30 
to 4:30, and Tuesday and Thurs- 
day from 9:00 to 12:30. 

These -are girls you should know 
and they are eager to serve you. 
Wlon't you please come to the 
Dental Hygiene BuUding to say 
hello and to take advantage of 
the dental hygiene services? 

Second Hootenanny 
In Planning Stage 

The Student Government Asso- 
ciation and the Inter-Social Coun- 
cil Club are coordinating their 
efforts in hopes of providing a 
fun-filled Hootenanny tor the stu- 
dent l)ody that is tentatively 
scheduled for November. 

Jim Prevost, in his capacity as 
chairman of the entertainment 
committee of ISCC issued the 
following statement, "We have 
contacted agents in Miami and 
N.Y.C. about the possibility of 
having one of the following: The 
Kingston Trio, The Limelighters, 
the Smothers Brothers, Peter, 
Paul and Mary, or the (:iancy 
Brothers and Macon." 

They are also exploring the 
feasibility of bringing the Holly--

Lecture Given 
By FAU Staffer 

Mr. Eugene Robinson, Florida 
Atlantic University staff mem- 
ber, spoke on Oceanography at 
the district meeting of the Amer- 
ican Association of University 
Women, September 16, in the 
PBJC auditorium. 

The United States government 
has long been looking for the ideal 
spot for the study of oceanogra- 
phy. Geographically the closest 
place to the Gulf Stream, the new 
Florida Atlantic University meets 
the government's needs. 

The United States government 
has supplied the school with 2.35 
billion dollars for research, de- 
velopment and manpower. This 
money will be divided among 
three federal agencies: the Na- 
tional Science Foundation, the 
Bureau of Commercial Fisheries 
and the Navy Department. 

The government has started to 
assemble equipment and build 
ships to be used in this research. 
The Floating Marine Lab will 
conduct research on diseases in 
the sea and on the different spe- 
cies of fish. These are only two 
of the many uses of the Floating 
Marine Lab.

Weather Aids 
In Providing 
New Laboratory 

The basic fundamentals of 
wading, swimming, rowing, skin- 
diving and pulling cars out of 
muck are some of the customs 
to which new and old students 
of PBJC have involuntarily be- 
come orientated. 

Since the beginning of the rainy 
season the campus lawns have 
turned into the campus doorside 
lakes, swunming pools and mud 

There are many advantages to 
havmg the campus waterways. 
Students now have the opportu- 
nity to learn how to make mud 
pies, how to play leap frog with 
the croaking lake inhabitants and 
how to hunt ducks that have sud- 
denly appeared on the scene. 

In building the connecting 
breezeways the engineers must 
have been thinkmg ahead— for the 
walks have drams leading from 
one side of each "rice field" to 
the other. 

These irrigation systems have 
at least provided the campus of- 
ficials with an easy way to curb 
the once constant traffic of the 
students tromping over the green 
grass— now campus green has 
turned to blue. 

Social Club Bids 
To Be Issued 

A Ust of names will be posted 
on the bulletm board on Monday, 
October 7, announcing those to 
whom a bid for a sorority or fra- 
ternity has been issued. 

This important event closes one 
of the most popular hunting sea- 
sons (better known as "Rush") 
and begins the pledge period, 
sometimes referred to as the 
taxidermist's delight. Pledges 
who siuT/ive this period are ad- 
mitted as members to the social 

The last day students could 
register for Rush was Thursday, 
September 19, at 12:00 noon. On 
Friday, September 20, Rush sea- 
son officially opened. The Inter- 
Social Club Council invited the 
students who signed up to a 
"Reception" for women and a 
"Smoker" for men. These events 
were followed by a serai-formal 
dance held at the Student Center. 
On September 21, informal rush 
began, and eight days later, for- 
mal rush period was underway. 
The formal rush parties, which 
begin October 3, will be sched- 
uled on the school calendar. On 
October 6, or "Hush Day," invi- 
tations wiU be issued after 10:00 
a.m., and bid parties will be held 
in the evenmg. On this day no 
member of a club may commu- 
nicate with a rushee, and no 

Speakers Avcuiabie 
For Bond Issue 

All campus clubs and studMit 
organizations will have the unique 
opportunity to hear about the 
coming Bond issue through local 
students and speakers. Phi Rho 
Pi, national honorary speech fra- 
ternity has consented to furnish 
student speakers for all organiza- 
tions who wish to hear about the 
proposed issue. 

Members of the organizaUons 
wUl also have the chance to sign 
a resolution stating that they ap^ 
prove and they will work for pass- 
age of the proposal. All students 
are encouraged to ask the sup- 
port of parents and fnends. 

Arrangements for speakers cm 
be made through Mr. Watson B.

national Phi Rho Pi and Chauman 
of PBJC English Department or 
Mr. Charles McCreight, publicity 
director of PBJC. 

rushee may influence a club mem- 
ber's decision. 

The three social clubs for wom- 
en are Tri Omega, Thi Del, and 
Philo. The clubs for men are 
Phi Da Di. Alpha Fidelphia, Tri 
Kappa Lambda (TKL) and Chi 
Sig. Chi Sig, with Mr. L. V. Lem- 
merman as faculty advisor, is 
at the head of the Inter-Social 
Club Council. The Inter-Social 
Club Council, often referred to 
as the I.S.C.C, is an organiza- 
tion composed of all the social 
clubs; its major function is to 
control and organize these clubs 
and their activities. 

Approximately 1200 freshmen 
are enrolled at Palm Beach Ju- 
nior College this year. Despite 
the large enrollment only 148 men 
and 141 women rushed for social 
clubs. Rushees are not as preva- 
lent this year as compared to past 
years because more conscientious 
effort is being given to studies 
and less to social activities. More 
effort along the academic line is 
heartily approved by Dean Glynn. 
He stated recenUy, "The most 
important thing m college is suc- 
cess in the academic program. 
Absolutely nothing should inter- 
fere with the achievement <rf suc- 
cessful grades." 

Since less than 50% of the 
rushees become pledges, the hunt- 
ing should be quite animated and 
therefore, all rushees are re- 
quested to wear name tags 
(phone numbers may be added 
for own reasons).

Graduates Return 
To Join Faculty 

This year three new faculty 
members at our college rank 
among the school's alumni. 

Returning to PBJC ai^e Mr. 
Witham Chambers, the ne*' head 
librarian; Mr. Ben Roberts, di- 
rector of the audio visual divi- 
sion, and Mr. Doug Sammons, 
instructor in biology. 

Mr. Chambers attended PBJC 
from 1949 to 1950, was president 
of our student government and 
was a member of Phi Da Di. He 
continued his education at the 
University of Vermont where he 
received his Bachelor of Arts de- 
gree and was employed as as- 
sistant librarian at Vermont's 
Medical School, From 1956 to 
1958, Mr. Chambers was a gifts 
and exchange student librarian 
at the University of Houston, 
Texas. Following his work at the 
University of Houston he founded 
the library at Manatee Jr. Col- 
lege, Bradenton, Florida. He 
did further graduate work and 
a degree in library science was 
completed at Florida State Uni- 
versity in 1963. 

Mr. Chambers served his mili- 
tary obligation in the Army In- 
fantry. He is married and has 
five chUdren ranging in age from 
nine months to sixteen years. He 
and his wife reside in Lake Worth. 

His plans for the future seem 
extensive. He hopes to expand 
the library building doubling its 
size in a few years with added 
conveniences such as listening 
rooms, study corrals, seminar 
rooms, micro-film and reading 

Another returning alunmus is 
Mr. Roberts, who designed our 
college seal. He was a member 
of the first graduating class, at- 
tending during the depression 
days when students "had to talk 

their way into upper class 
ranks. . . ." 

Mr. Roberts went to Palm 
Beach High School, entering 
PBJC in 1935. In 1936 he was ad- 
mitted to Georgetown University 
preparing himself for the teach- 
ing profession in the School of 
Foreign Service. 

At PSU he received his Mas- 
ter's degree in library science. 

From 1956-1961 he established 
a library in the Flood Control 
District Headquarters comprising 
information for both federal gov- 
ernment and local counties of 
Florida. Recently he was ap- 
pointed vice-chairman for a four 
year term to the State Library 
Board. Tills past winter he served 
on the faculty of the Graham 
Eckes School. 

In 1942, Mr. Roberts received 
his commission in the United 
States Coast Guard serving 
throughout the Second World War, 
untU 1946 as the commanding of- 
ficer. Port of Kahululi, Hawaii. 
Last summer Mr. Roberts 
traveled to several European 
countries and visited the great 
national libraries of France, Italy, 
Switzerland and England. 

His office is the AV Center in 
the Library. 

A third returnee, Mr. Doug 
Sammons is a native of West 
Palm Beach. He atended Palm 
Beach High School and graduated 
from PBJC in 1958. While at 
PBJC he was treasurer of Phi 
Theta Kappa, Business Manager 
of the Beachcomber and a mem- 
ber of Circle K. 

Mr. Sammons received his 
Bachelor's degree from the Uni- 
versity, of Maryland in 1961, and 
his Master's from Florida State 
University in April '63. 

Taking a leave from academic 
studies he traveled through the 
northeastern part of the U. S. and

far-away lands, and in this case, 
Oliver StaUer's Japanese Inn in- 
spired Mr. and Mrs. Jensen, our 
evening class ceramics teacher 
and chairman of our art depart- 
ment, to journey to the Far East 
last summer. 

After arriving by air in Japan, 
tbe couple resided at the Tokyo 
Internatiwiai House, which is a 
cultural center for students and 
educators, at the Prank Lloyd 
Wright Imperial Hotel, and also 
at the Zen Study Center, where 
they lived in true Japanese style 
ccraplete with kimonas, sleeping 
jofts, and meals served on low

decorative purposes- However, 

the Westernization taking place 
in Japan involves many aspects 
of their culture. 

While the Jensens were visit- 
ing this foreign land they toured 
many of the old kihis located 
there. They watched ancient and 
modern ceramics being molded. 

Mr. and Mrs. Jensen were very 
surprised when university stu- 
dents there approached them with 
the intention of speaking with and 
hearing someone who actually 
spoke the English language. The 
fact was also disclosed that cer- 
tain student groups form clubs 
for the purpose of learning our 
native tongue.

SGA Holds 
First Meeting 

The SGA budget for the 1963-64 
year was the main point of inter- 
est at the first meeting of the 
Student Congress held Sept. 26. 

The Student Congress consists 
of a representative from each 
student organization on the cam- 
pus with the authority to provide 
an opportunity for student or- 
ganizations to take an active part 
in Student Government, 

The main duties of the Congress 
are; to aid and advise the Exec- 
utive Council and to bring items 
of interest pertaining to the re- 
spective groups before the Stu- 
dent Government. 

Bruce Ammerman, president of 
the SGA, requested that all requi- 
sitions for the budget be turned 

sen has decided the most out- 
standing quality of the Japanese 
people is "the warm friendliness 
and enthusiasm of the Japanese 
for all things Western, and this 
is the conception of them that 
stays with you always."

Alabamians Have 
Poor Leadership 


The bombing and murder of 
four innocent Negro children in 
Birmingham, Alabama, was one 
of the most disgusting -examples 
of racial hatred in the modern 
history of our country. Tliis ugly 
act, along with the killing of 
Medgar Evers in Mississippi, 
should cause every American to 
hang his head in shame, and. the 
saddest part of the tragedy was 
its complete needlessness. In my 
opinion, a share of the blame 
should lie at the feet of Governor 
George C. Wallace. 

If the governor had been a real 
leader, sensible and far-seeing, 
he should have tried to calm 
some of the white supremists in 
his state. He should have exer- 
cised statesmanship, rather than 
politics and prepared Alabamians 
for peaceful desegregation. This 
would seem to be his duty as a 
servant of the people and an 
executor of the law, but Governor 
Wallace chose to defy the Federal 
government. He chose to inflame 
the hot-heads in Alabama by 
preaching a doctrine of states 
rights over federal authority. 

The inevitable result of such 
defiance was violence between 
the Negroid race and the white 
supremist. Governor Wallace was 
definitely opposed to violence, 
but has done little constructively 
to prevent it. 

Segregation is in its death 
spasms and, if Southern leader- 
ship in the future is inept as it 
has. been in the past, these death 
spasms are likely to be very un- 
comfortable for all involved. 

ham's recently televised Los An- 
geles Crusade was another testi- 
mony to his skill as an orator, 
and even atheists should have 
admitted that those who "made 
their decision for Christ" left the 
Crusade with the belief of refor- 
mation of their lives. 

The new "Huntley - Brinkley 
Report" on NBC-TV has doubled 
its broadcast time and, judging 
from last week's reports, should 
double its worth. 

All freshmen should study care- 
fully the issues and the candi- 
dates in the upcoming election. 
Also— it wouldn't hurt them to 
break precedent and look at the 
Student Constitution in the Stu- 
dent Handbook before they vote. 

If you are an average moyie- 
goer, don't bother to see Felliiii's 
"81,4." I consider myself of nor- 
mal intelligence and enduring the 
movie was a strain for me. I 
always thought that a movie 
should have a plot. 

One new sports car is so small, 
it comes equipped with a device 
that enables it to jump out of 
the way of angry pedestrians.

Crane Studies 
At Stratford 

Mr. Josh Crane, by virtue of a 
scholarship presented to him by 
the English Speaking Union, spent 
seven weeks last summer study- 
ing at the University of Birming- 
ham in Stratford-upon-Avon, Eng- 
land. Mr. Crane stated that his 
class had lectures every morning 
by some of the foremost Shake- 
spearean scholars in the world 
and two afternoons a week they 
held seminars, informal discus- 
sions, and essay consultations. 
As a part of the course, they at- 
tended all of the plays at the 
Royal Shakespeare Theatre. The 
plays ranged from a one-man 
pantomime by Marcel Marceau 
in Paris, to the most elaborate 
musical in London, to an orig- 
inal revue given in a converted 
sheep barn in a small Scottish 
town. Mr. Crane's theatrical 
impressions were sent back for 
his weekly drama column in the 
Palm Beach Post-Times. 

The Palm Beach Branch of the 
English Speaking Union awarded 
the scholarship to the PBJC 
teacher. He and Mrs. Crane set 
sail June 26 "on the "Queen Mary" 
from New York. They left the 
ship in Paris, where he and his 
wife spent four days. 

While in Stratford, the Cranes 
stayed with Paul and Diana 
Sainsbury, an EngMsh couple. Mr. 
Sainsbury was quite active in 
politics and was on the town 
council of Stratford. Mrs. Sains- 
bury was a former British actress 
and a former manager at the 
Royal Shakespeare Theatre. 

The Cranes met many profes- 
sional directors and producers 
through the Sainsburys and had 
a rare visit backstage of the 
Royal Shakespeare Theatre. 

Weekends were spent on trips 
to North Wales, Oxford, Coven- 
try, including three days in Scot- 
land, and another weekend in 

Mr. and Mrs. Crane left London 
by jet, arriving in Nassau ten 
hours later.

Warning to freshmen: A num- 
ber of new vending machines 
around school this semester have 
caused quite a reaction.* Posted 
just outside the Hbrary and ad- 
ministration section, these mon- 
sters serve a wide assortment of 
cokes, coffee, and cocoa, but a 
warning to those who are not 
majoring in engineering. It prac- 
tically takes a nuclear physicist 
to run them. I'm sure, however, 
with practice and a lot of dimes 
they wOl be mastered. After all, 
there are only 4 dials to turn, 6 
buttons to push, and a retropack 
to jettison the container. 

Due to this year's record en- 
rollment, the traffic tie-ups in the 
mornings, afternoons, and eve- 
nings have become a real prob- 
lem. Don't fret if you have to 
spend five semesters to complete 
your JC education. Last year a 
number of students did theu- 
daily homework while waiting 
for the light to change at the Con- 
gress intersection; however, they 
lost credit since they were not 
able to fight the traffic back to 
school the next day to hand it in. 
Do you have shattered nerves? 
Beware of that beak smashing

enter. It seems that every time 
you are in a hurry and thinking 
about an important assignment 
you run smack dab into it. Re-

attended each day." 

"The Baptist Student Union met 
every day of Religious Emphasis 
Week. We had a speaker from 
five different sections of our city 
ranging from Delray Beach to 
West Palm Beach. We felt that 
this week was one of inspiration 
and fellowship, one which brought 
us closer to the realization that 
we need to proclaim Jesus Christ 
and spread HIS Gospel through- 
out our campus. Each speaker 
spoke on a topic which dealt with 
general problems of young people 
such as their vocation, partial- 
individualism. Youth Wants to 
Know, etc. Our meeting on 
Wednesday, 'The Bible Vs. Evolu- 
tion' created such interest in the 
minds of our young people and 
even in some of our teachers, that 
we are going to have several spe- 
cial meetings this semester in 
relation to this subject of evolu- 
tion and what the Bible has to 
say about it. Average attendance 
about 26. 

"We wish to emphasize very 
strongly that there is a great need 
of all students of this campus to 
attend and be faithful to the 
religious group of your choice. 
Don't be ashamed of your Lord 
and Saviour, Jesus Christ, be- 
cause if you are I'm afraid He 
may be ashamed of you before 
His Father which is in Heaven." 








In Review 

By Renay M. Connell 
James Baldwin is the story of 
the strange people who live in 
Greenwich Village, New York. 
Its main characters are Rufus 
Scott, a Negro musician; Vivaldo 
Moore, a white poet, Rufus's best 
friend; Leona, Rufus's white lov- 
er; Cass and Richard Silenski, 
friends to Vivaldo; Ida Scott, 
Rufus's sister and Vivaldo's lov- 
er; Eric Jones, a homosexual 
actor, friend to Cass and Vivaldo. 
As you can tell merely by the 
listing of the characters: they 
are pretty mixed up. The plot 
of the story can be summed up 
in one word: sex. And the plot 
is faithfully followed, with every- 
body, regardless of sex and color, 
piling into everybody else's bed. 
It gets rather dreary after a 

James Baldwin, an articulate 
speaker for the rights of Negroes, 
gets bogged down in this highly 
acclaimed book. He has been 
called by Edmund Wilson "one 
of the best writers we have." 
True, there is nothing wrong with 
his writing. It is the subject that 
makes for rough going. 

Mr. Baldwin appears rather 
paranoic in regard to black and 
white relations. Whenever he 
depicts Vivaldo and Ida walking 
down the street together he sees 
all sorts of hateful, horrifying 
looks in the eyes of passers-by. 
This seems unrealistic. It ap- 
pears to me that some of the 
people on the streets of New 
York mind their own business 
and are not in the least concerned 
with White Vivaldo and Black Ida. 
But perhaps I am wrong and 
New Yorkers do worry about 
race problems all the time. 

All in all, I would reconunend 
"Another Country" only to those 
who like sex and color problems 
and who don't mind seeing rest- 
room wall language in their lit- 
erature. As for me, I'm going 
back to Sinclair Lewis and Ray

Debate Team Plans 
For Coming Year 

The Palm Beach Junior College 
Debate Team well demonstrates 
the adage — "Nothing succeeds 
like success." Pictured above 
are Judy McManus and Buddy 
Miller, affirmative debaters, as 
they received the award for "Best 
Debaters" at Palm Beach Junior 
College during the armual Phi Rho 
Pi banquet in June, 1963. With 
this tangible reminder of past 
accomplishments to encourage 
them, the 1963-64 teams will be 
out in force to improve the record. 
The deoate topic for the com- 
ing year has been announced and 
it is of much more than academic 
interest to students here at Jun- 
ior College. The resolve to be 
debated is "That the federal gov- 
ernment should guarantee an op- 
portunity for all qualified high 
school students to obtain a col- 
lege education." This topic and 
its obvious personal application 
to college students who are 
pressed by the weight of rising 
costs of education will certainly 
spark the PBJC debaters. There 
is much flexibility in regard to 
arguments that can be used and 
the feasibility or unfeasibility of 
any plan proposed in arguing the 
topic is much closer to our range 
of experience with government — 
private relations than was last 
year's "Economic Community of 
all Non-Communist Nations" sub- 
ject. Also, there will be much 
more fervor inherent in any col- 
lege student's argument on "fed- 
eral aid" since he is directly and 
personally concerned right now! 
There is another new aspect t>t 
debate at PBJC this year. As a 
result of the expanded debate 
budget, it will be possible for 
PBJC to send twice as many team 
members (8 as compared with 
4 last year) to the intercollegiate 
debate tournaments. This is an 
important development, since de- 
bate is the only intercollegiate 
activity in which PBJC is repre- 
sented. Clearly, with the large 
enrolhnent at JC and its out- 
standing record as the oldest and 
finest Junior College in the state 
it should far outrank other rivals 
in any intercollegiate clash. 

This year PBJC will have am- 
ple opportunity to show the cal- 
iber of its debate team in several 
important meets. Two events 
are already on the schedule: 
The Florida State University In- 
vitational Tournament at Talla- 
hassee in February; and the an- 
nual Phi Rho Pi Tournament at 
Gulf Coast Junior College, Pana- 
ma City, in April. In addition, 
there is a possibility of attending 
a practice debate ression at St. 
Petersburg and a spring tourna- 
ment at the University of South 
Florida at Tampa. 

Considering aU of these things, 
one foresees a challenghig and 
successful year for debate at 

The social clubs of PBJC got off to a good start at the danee fol- 
lowing the ISCC Smoker and Tea. 

Ed. Note— If you are a fresh- 
man or sophomore who is inter- 
ested in participating in inter- 
collegiate debate this year, watch 
for announcements of team try- 
outs in the bulletin!

Rehearsals are underway on the 
first play of the season for the 
Palm Beach Junior College Play- 
ers. The play, "Dinny and The 
Witches," is by William Gibson 
and will open for a three-night 
run starting October 24 at the 
College Auditorium. 

Work on the set, which will 
provide the proper background 
for the production, has begun un- 
der the supervision of Mr. Peter 
Sargent, designer and technical 
director for the play, Mr. Sai*- 
gent has appointed the following 
Student Committee Chairmen to 
assist him: Bill Knapp, Stage 
Manager; Gloria Chepens, Assist-

er; Mark Hiers, Carpenter; Bob 
Lydiard, Properties; Terry Kime, 
Sound; Ellen Quincey, Make-up; 
Earlienne Witman, Publicity ; 
Maureen Mahoney, Program. 

Mr. Sargent is looking for 
people interested in working back 
stage. He said, "The making of 
scenery is ideal work for the 
amateur craftsman because so 
much can be accomplished so 
easily." If you wish to help with

Colleges are complicated and bewildering places, filled with

How, then, can we understand him? Well sir, perhaps the best 
way is to take an average day in the life of an average dean. 
Here, fur example, is what happened last Thursday to Dean 
Killjoy X. Damper of the Duluth College of Belles Lettres 
and Pemmican. 

At 6 a.m. he woke, dressed, lit a Marlboro, and went up on

placed there during the night by higlfrspirited undergraduates. 

At 8 a.m. he reached his office, lit a Marlboro, and met with 
E. Pluribus Ewbank, editor of the student newspaper. Young 
Ewbank had been writing a series of editorials urging the 
United States to annex Canada. WHien the editorials had 
evoked no response, he had taken matters into his own hands. 
Accompanied by his society editor and two proofreaders, he 
had gone over the border and conquered Manitoba. With great 
patience and several Marlboro Cigarettes, the Dean persuaded 
young Ewbank to give Manitoba back. Young Ewbank, how- 
ever, insisted on keeping Winnipeg. . , t. ,

All page proofs were to be returned

presses were held up until 3:00 o'clock, 
Wednesday. Rather than hold up the 
papers until Monday or later, a decision 
was made to run the paper without the

As of today they have had only one week. Referring 
to the error, Ammerman added, "It was an oversight 
on my part." 

Hand oallots will be used this 
year, although voting machines 
have been used in the past. 
Because of the coming county

Student Budget Finalized ; 
No Funds For Social Clubs 

No funds were allotted to any 
of the seven social clubs on

which was finalized October 10

PBJC Receives Gift 

Dr. Earl Barkley, prominent 
citizen of the Palm Beaches, 
presented the PBJC Library 
with the new National Geo- 
graphic book, "America's Won- 
derlands, the National Parks." 

Accepting the gift for PBJC 
are Dr. Harold C. Manor, Presi- 
dent and Mr. William Cham- 
bers, Head Librarian. 

Lifelong member of the Na- 
tional Geographic Society, Dr. 
Barkley received his copy of the 
new book and through an error 
a second book. He informed the 
Society of this, and suggested 
that the book be given to the 
JC library. The Society agreed 
to the suggestion and asked that 
Dr. Barkley present the gift. 

Dr. Barldey, a retired dentist, 
is very active in civic and 
religious work. He has traveled 
extensively throughout the 
world and once served as Presi- 
dent of the Norton Gallery 
School of Art. 

'58 Jubilee Class 
To Repair Walk 

The Class of '58, better known 
as the Jubilee Class, is planning 
to pick up and repair the 
stepping stones between the stu- 
dent lounge and the parking lot 
which have become cracked and 
also those on which the names 
have become illegible. 

As a gift to PBJC the stones 
were laid in 1958. Members of 
the class did all the labor on 
the walk, forming and cutting 
the names into the stones them- 
selves. In the past five years 
many feet have trod upon the 
walk thus grinding out a few 
of the names. The grads again 
intend to do the work them- 

The Jubilee Class which was 
the first to attend this campus 
for both years, held a class 
reunion last June. They ai'e the 
first gi-aduating class of PBJC 
to have a reunion. 

Gary Miller, graduating presi- 
dent of the class, presided over 
the program which was held at 
the Hohday Inn. Mrs. Ester 
Holt, advisor to the class, esti- 
mated that 30 members, their 
wives and families attended.

against the social clubs," added 
Joan Lowery, SGA secretary. 
"We are thinking of the student 
body as a whole." 

A tentative budget, drawn up 
by the SGA president and ap-

Vote In Election 

The question has been raised many times whether 
the vote should be given to eighteen-year-olds or not. 
There is only one test that can give a conclusive answer. 
On October 25, students at PBJC will be taking this 
test by participating in campus elections. 

Although these elections will have no bearing on 
national, state or even county politics, they are more 
important to the student because the results will affect 
his immediate environment. The issues bear serious 

First, the freshmen will elect their class officers. 
The success or failure of any class projects will depend 
directly on tl:3 initiative and responsibility of these 
officers. Also they can and should contribute ideas 
and energy to the work of the SGA. Whethe'* they 
do or not depends on the ability of each student to 
judge the candidates on the basis of qualifications and 
on the willingness of each student to transform 
ju-dgement into choice by voting. 

Second, all students will have the chance to elect 
someone to fill the vacated SGA vice presidency. If 
any student thinks .this office is unimportant or that 
the V.P. is. a rarely needed stand-in for the president, 
let him refer to last year's issues of the Beachcomber. 
Those who were here remember the chaos and 
controversy that raged around campus when officer 
after officer became ineligible because of grades or 
other reasons. As a result a temporary appointee who 
held the position due to a vague clause in the constitution 
was responsible for carrying out the job and straighten- 
ing out the mess. We don't want to see this situation 
recur. It won't if the student body makes a prudent 

Third, the future of intercollegiate sports at PBJC 
is held back by lack of funds. Therefore a $5 increase 
in the student activity fee has been proposed. It is 
up to the students to decide. The decision will most 
definitely affect the campus activities for years to 

PBJC is a growing institution, both in size and 
influence. Its future largely depends on the interest 
and energy which students devote to improve campus 

It has been said that time is a thief— if so — then 
apathy is a murderer. Don't let apathy take away 
the "life" that PBJC could enjoy in the near and 
distant future. 

Vote October 25 and vote wisely! 

Poster Contest To Be Held

of the contest were not ironed

Bennett's belief, that a complete

Vote Yes For Bond Issue 

It won't be long now. There are but a few days 
left before we, the citizens of Florida have the chance 
to exercise that certain inalienable right; the right 
to vote, and with this power build a future for each 
and every American citizen. 

The idea of American educational superiority can 
become a realty with only the slightest effort on our 
jiart. All we have to do is vote "YES" for issue number 
two, the Constitutional Amendment to Article XII on 
Novemb.or the Fifth. Without this amendment, bonds 
may not be legally sold by the State of Florida to 
provide funds for the building of classrooms and 
laboratories by our colleges. We are drastically short 
changing ourselves if we fail to ratify this amendment. 

The entire issue is very simple. With this amend- 
ment to Article XII, the State of Florida will be in 
the position to sell bonds, under a reasonable limit, 
to promote the acquisition of money for the purpose 
of building our much necied educational facilities. The 
outstanding aspect of the amendment is that no 
individual citizen will be taxed in any way. 

Let us better ourselves in a manner befitting 
Americans. As citizens of a free nation, we have for 
years helped outselves to prosperity, never calling upon 
aid from oulside sources. There is no reason to ever 
warrant a situation where we might need help because, 
as informed citizens, we have the good sense to know 
when something is needed to promote our own welfare. 
We have reached the point where the right decision 
is necessary to advance ourselves as we have done 
so many times before. That decision must be to promote 
education by exlendin,?^ our facilities to teach our ever 
increasing numbers of students in the pi-oper fashion. 

For our own sake and for the benefit of all 
Americans, we cannot let ourselves down on November 
the Fifth. Let's get out and vote for issue number 
two entitled "Constitutional Amendment to Article 

Books Missing 
From Library 

students wonder why the 
northeast door of the library is 
kept locked. After discussing the 
problem with Mr. William 
Chambers, Head Librarian, 
Bruce Ammerman, SGA presi- 
dent, readily answers the ques- 

Last year over 797 books were 
'unofficially' taken from the 
library. This incomplete inven- 
tory values the lost books at 
$3,987, stated Bruce. It was 
estimated that the loss could 
run as high as $4,500. Defaced 
books and missing periodicals 
were not included in this sur- 

Because of the disclosed dis- 
honesty of some of the students, 
the prexy continued, it has heen 
suggested that all students have 
their books checked at the door 
on the way out. 

Perhaps a student library 
committee could be formed to 
work in conjunction with the 
faculty advisory committee to 
dissolve this problem. 

Since punishment for a 'book 
stealer' can be as severe as 

expulsion from school, added 
the SGA president, it seems 
foolish that one should run the 
risk when most of the books can 
either be checked out for a 
night or a week. 

Ammerman went on to say 
that as long as dishonesty re- 
mains among the students of 
PBJC the northeast door shall 
remain locked and the library 
will continue to lose books, 
some of which can never be 
obtained again.

A great percentage o! the 
students at Palm Beach Junior are narrow-minded, 
glorified, high schoolers. 

That was a blunt start. Let 
me explain. 

My introductory column in the 
last edition of The Beaclicomber 
expressed a desire to provide 
the "thinking student" at 
P.B.J.C. Willi food for thought. 
On second thought, I should 
chuck my intentions into the 
circular file labeled "wild 
dreams." Thinking students on 
this campus are few and far 

What is a "thinkinf., student"? 
He wants to know the who, 
when, what, whore, why and 
how of things in and out of the 
classroom, international, nation- 
al and local affairs ar-o of great 
interest to him. He endeavors 
to familiarize himself with the 
philosophies and tlicorics of 
great men and oven infamous 
men. l-fe has opinions. He is 
open for discussion and correc- 
tion. He is aware. Ho searches. 
He is broadminded. Ho tlico- 
rizes. He seeks a liberal educa- 

Don't get the idea that tlie 
"thinking student" is an ogg- 
hoad. He is regular. Ho has the 
same interests as other stu- 
dents. Ho goes to tiie "hootcnan- 
nies" and the dances, occa- 
sionally helps out in a school 
activity, gripes (intelligently) 
about his instructors, and i.s 
generally liked and rcspccled. 

If it wore possible to round 
up every so-called "thinking 
student" on the Palm I5eacli 
campus, I am of the opinion 
thai the.v wouldn't even fill 
three classrooms in the Social 
Sci(>nco building. 

Hi.gli school tassels still hang 
from the roar view mirrors of 
many J.C. student cars. "Higli 
school Harry's" rev through the 
campus in first gear, not unlilte 
a typical Friday night at Wim- 
py's. Groups of students bunch 
together in sclf-dosigriatod areas 
of the lounge and attempt to 
"play llic cool role". A popular 
topic of discussion is. In sum- 
mary, "Ten (>asy ways lo skij) 
a class and got away with it." 
Tiie higii Kcliool influence at 
Palm Beach Junior College is 
thick and ovorwhelmin.g. 

The college newspaper should material that is interest- 
ing to the students as a whole. 
Therefore, I dedicate tlie re- 
mainder of this column to the 
interests of tlio typical "lounge 
loafer" at Palm Beach J.C.

Dear Editor: 

I would like to take exception 
with the critic who reviewed 
James Baldwin's book, "An- 
other Country," in the Oct. 4 
issue of Beachcomber. The crit- 
ic did not qualify himself as a 
critic, other than implying that 
he had read the book. On that 
basis I qualify myself as a critic 
of his critique because I, too, 
have read the book. 

First, he lists the character's 
names, and then states they are 
"pretty mixed up" just because 
some of them are white and 
some Negro and they have 
names other than Jones, Smith 
or Adams. He further states the 
plot is entirely sex. These as- 
sumptions are given without any 
explanations or examples. Final- 
ly, his last point is tli,at the 
story is unrealistic because the 
characters are concerned about 
racial and personal relation- 
ships written in "rest room wall 

1 wonder if this critic has ever 
lived in Greenwich Village as 
I have. Does he know that the 
people that Baldwin writes 
about not only speak in a most 
gross manner, but if Baldwin 
had not used this language the 
characters would not have been 
believable or realistic. This sto- 
ry is not a fairy hale of Victori- 
an manners but a shocking 
report on the daily struggles of 
people mixed together by pover- 
ty and privation.

The critic recommends this 
book to "those who like sex and 
color problem", but I say that 
it takes an adult reader, with 
emotional and intellectual matu- 
rity, to see the truth and beauty 
in this book. The critic says he 
is going back to reading Sinclair 
Lewis and Ray Bradbury, 
which is a good idea. I'm sure 
he'll better report on subjects 
less challenging and stimulating 
and which do not conflict with 
his preconceived ideas on 
morality and racial relations.

Wishing Well 
Adopts Anna 

The Wishing Well at the East 
entrance of the Administration 
building is not merely a piece 
of landscape. It is a project of 
the entire campus. The money 
that students put in the well is 
used to support an orphan. The 
total amount needed each year 
is $120. Small containers are' 
also located in the lunge. 

Anna Piscopo is the new adop- 
tee. Anna comes from a poor 
family. They live in a crowded 
slum area, her father working 
when he can. 

Born May 22, 1959, she attends 
kindergarten at Casa Materna 
Orphanage in Naples, Italy. A 
shy, cooperative chUd, she loves 
stories and dolls. Her chores 
consist of putting toys away. 

Last year's adoptee, Maria 
Antonietta De Meo, has left the 
orphanage and is no longer 
under their care.

Busy SGA President 
Studies College Needs 

Quiet but outspoken, tired but 
wide awake, and busy every 
moment but always ready to 
help are characteristics which 
are attributed to our SGA presi- 
dent, Bruce Ammerm'an. 

In the spring of this year 
Arnmerman was elected to the 
highest office a student can hold 
v-iile at PBJC — that of SGA 
president. By holding this office, 
he devotes many hours of his 
busy week to the students of 

Before school started Bruce 
worked over 200 hours lining up 
projects for the year, citing 
needed Improvements, and in

The prexy's pet project is the 
proposed picnic area on which 
he has successfully gained head- 
way. He has been given permis- 
sion to locate the area on a strip 
of land in the northeast corner 
of the campus, running from the 
physical education area to the 
water. Mr. Whitmers' architec- 
ture class is drawing up plans 
for the grounds and construction 
is tentatively planned to begin 
within the month. 

One of the more difficult tasks 
with Ammerman is obligated to 
do has just been finalized — 
that of — the fiGA Budget. "We 
had more money requested than 
we had in the funds," com- 
mented the SGA head. 

As president of the student 
body, Ammerman is also ex-

Organizes For Year 

At a recent organizational 
meeting the Palm Beach Junior 
College Concert Band elected 
the following to serve for the 
1963-64 academic year. They 
are: President: : David Welch; 
Vice President: Cathy Godwin; 
Secy.-Tres: Carol Barnett; Li- 
brarians: Robert Brown and 
Dick Le Gaye. 

The College Band is now 
Hearing its maximum size of 
sixty pieces, and this year it 
has achieved the full instrumen- 
tation and overall balance which 
makes it truly a symphonic 
band organization. While the 
prime objective of the band 
program is that of providing 
an opportunity to perform a 
wide assortment of band litera- 
ture for the knowledge and 
pleasure the bandsmen them- 
selves obtain, the public will be 
given several opportunities to 
hear this fine group on various 
times during the year. Their 
first appearance will be at the 
Chri stmas assembly— 

The band is under the direc- 
tion of Dr. Robert Lawes. Dr. 
Lawes has had much experience 
working with bands, including 
dance bands, and orchestras. 
After rceiving his doctorate in 
musicology from North Texas 
State University, and prior to 
joining the faculty of PBJC, Dr. 
Lawes went to MayviUe State 
Teachers College in Mayville, 
N.D., where he directed both 
the concert and the marching 
bands and conducted various 
instrumental groups. 

Roy Bell To Serve 
On Guide Committee 

Roy E. Bell, an instructor in 
the Department of Health and 
Physical Education at Palm 
Beach Junior College, has been 
recommended and approved by 
the State Courses of Study Com- 
mittee to aid in the developing 
of guides to teaching civil de- 
fense in Florida schools.

If there is one plea that can reach even the most 
"by the book" instructor here at PBJC it is - "Please, 
sir, may we go before the bell and try to beat the 
traffic?" This cry goes up in every classroom every 
afternoon about 3:19 p.m. And every teacher out here 
can sympathize, for no driver or rider is spared the 
afternoon chaos, whether he is student, teacher or 
administrator. But the end is not in sight even after 
you mal<;e it out to Congress Avenue and finally succeed 
in getting through the light. No— you still have to 
brace yourself lor the mad dash in the morning. 

Realizing that since enrollment is up at JC, so 
is the number of cai-s on campus - your editor was 
prepared to take this with a philosophical sigh. But 
that didn't last long. It lasted until the day I spent 
twenty-five minutes stopping, starting and stalling on 
a stretch of rutted, muddy road trying to get to 
Congress Ave. just to wait fifteen munutes more to 
get through the light. Then and there a resolve formed 
to find out what was causing such abominable conditions 
and what could be done short of renting a helicopter 
to fly over the mess. 

In discussing the matter with several members 
of the college faculty and administration - your editor 
unearthed the following facts : 

FIRST— the fact the college needs an additional ac- 
cess road to the North end of the campus from Lucerne 
Ave. is nothing new. However, the last session of the 
Florida Legislature passed a law placing all school 
roads and grounds under the jurisdiction of State Road 
Dept. So we will have to wait for that agency to 
build one for us. 

SECOND— the four-laning of Congress Ave. has 
been an obvious necessity for quite some time but no 
action has been taken as yet. However, it now appears 
that the long-awaited construction will begin in the 
near future. The administration has been assured that 
when this begins, an access road to the North end of 
the campus will be started. 

THIRD — there isn't enough personnel to direct 
traffic on and off the campus. There is only one campus 
policeman who already works a full day contending 
with the hopeless traffic and parking situation on 
campus. Clearly he cannot do the work of 2 or 3. 
The college cannot hire additional personnel until the 
county school board allots additional funds. However, 
this is one bad situation with a happy solution. The 
local law enforcement agencies, viz. the Highway Patrol 
and County Sheriff's office have been most co-operative. 
They have assigned men to help direct traffic at peak 
hours and to control the traffic light at Congress and 
Lucerne. We appreciate their help, but clearly the 
school will need additional campus policemen to handle 
the anticipated increase in enrollment next year. 

FOURTH — the on-campus parking facilities are 
hopelessly inadequate. This is made obvious during 
the rainy days when cars get stuck in the mud and 
must be towed out. In addition, the jumble of cars 
all trying to get in line on a small access road, creates 
an instant traffic jam and a dangerous situation. 
Already, there has been an accident as a result of 
one car trying to nudge into the flow of traffic. 

However, despite the seriousness and immediacy 
of the problem, no action to enlarge the parking facilities 
is planned for the present. 

In view of these facts, the B'Comber endorses the 
following steps: 

1. The sooner that action is taken on foiur-laning 
Congress Ave., the sooner the traffic safety conditions 
can improve. 

2. An access road to the North end of the campus 
is a Must. 

3. The construction of additional parking facilities 
on campus is not only desirable but vital, especially 
in the face of anticipated college growth. 

All of these things are out of the students' hands. 
All we can do is tell those in positions of authority 
that we support these actions. However, there is one 
thing that each student can do. If each one would let 
one car get into the line-up from the different parking 
areas things would go much faster. Why not try some 
traffic courtesy and see how it works?

{Bylhe Author ofRallij [iound ike Flag, Boijs!" and, 
"Barefoot Buy With Cheek.") 


Today, foregoing levity, let uk turn our keen young minds to 
the principal problem facing American colleg&s today: the 
population explosion. Only last week four people exploded in 
Cleveland, Ohio— one of them while canying a plate o! soup. 
In case you're thinking such a thing couldn't happen anywhere 
but in Cleveland, let me tell you about two other cases last 
week— a 45-year-old man in Provo, Utah, and a 19-year-old 
girl in Northfield, Minnesota. And, in addition, there was a 
near miss in High Point, North Carolina— an cight,-year-old 
boy who was saved only by the quick thinkingof his cat, I''red,who 
pushed the phone off the hook with his muzzle and dialed the 
department of weights and measures. (It would, perhaps, have 
been more logical for Fred to dial the fire department, but one 
can hardly expect a cat to summon a fire engine which is fol- 
lowed by a Dalmatian, can one?) 

But I digress. The population explosion, I say, is upon us. 
It is, of course, cause for concern but not for alarm, because I 
feel sure that science will ultimately find an answer. After all. 

pr ^Me exPbdei 

has not science in recent years brought us such marvels as the 
maser, the bevatron, and the Marlboro filter? Oh, what a saga 
of science was the discovery of the Marlboro filter! Oh, what a 
heart-rending epic of trial and error, of dedication and perse- 
verance! And, in the end, what a triumph it was when the 
Marlboro research team, after years of testing and discarding 
one filter material after anotlier— iron, nickel, tin, antimony, 
obsidian, poundcake— finally emerged, tired but happy, from 
their laboratory, carrying in tlieir hands the perfect filter 
cigarette! Indeed, what rejoicing there still is whenever we 
light up a Marlboro which comes to us in soft pack and Flip- 
Top Box in all fifty states and Cleveland! 

Yes, science will ultimately solve the problems arising from 
the population explosion, but meanwhile America's colleges 
are in dire straits. Where can we find classrooms and teachers 
for today's gigantic influx of students? 

Well sir, some say the solution is to adopt the trimester sys- 
tem. This system, already in use at many coUeges, eliminates 
summer vacations, has three semesters per annum instead of 
two, and compresses a four-year-course into three years. 

This is, of course, good, but is it good enough? Even under 
the trimester system the student has occasional days off. More- 
over, his nights are utterly wasted in sleeping. Is this the kind 
of all-out attack that is indicated? 

I say no. I say desperate situations call for desperate reme- 
dies. I say that partial measures will not solve this crisis. I 
say we must do no less than go to school every single day of 
the year. But that is not all. I say we must go to school 24 
hours of every day! 

The benefits of such a program are, as you can see, obvious. 
First of all, the classroom shortage will disappear because all' 
the dormitories can be converted into classrooms. Second, the 
teacher shortage will disappear because all the night watchmen 
can be put to work teaching solid state physics and Restoration 
drama. And finally, overcrowding will disappear because every- 
body vvill quit school. 

Any further questions? © 1003 m»x simiman 

Yes, one further question: the makers of Marlboro, who 
sponsor this column, would like to know whether you have\ 
tried a Marlbono lately. It's the filter cigarette with a man's 
world of flavor. Settle back and enjoy one soon

JeUo signs everywhere. On 
the walls, lawns, bulletin 
boards, the middle of Lake 
Congress, stop signs, in Chinese 
fortune cookies, on folk singer's 
guitars, and elsewhere these 
signs appear. 

Jello (also spelled JeU-o) 
com6s in several flavors. Some 
of these are cherry, root beer, 
nicotine (also called Marlboro 
JeUo), raspberry, beer (not sold 
to minors), baloney, borscht, 
banana, and raspberry (which 
is so good it deserves to be 
mentioned twice). The JeUo 
signs appearing on campus have 
nothing to do with any of these 
flavors. The JeUo signs have 
nothing to do with JeUo as most 
of us JeUo lovers know it. 

JeUo signs first appeared on 
the campus of Florida State 
University. From FSU it spread 
like the plague untU PBJC was 
engulfed by the signs. The stu- 
dent who started the JeUo 
movement at PBJC goes by the 
alias of Mark Pledon. Hedon 
comes from the word Hedonist, 
which means "pleasure seek- 

Jello is supposed to be a 
symbol, a question, a provoker 
of thought, and a delicious de- 
sert. A member of another 
generation put up these signs 
to provoke thought. This other 
generation that this student 
identifies himself with is beat. 

No one wiU ever know for 
sure if thought was provoked by 
the Jello signs. No one wiU ever 
know if PBJC students think 
more now tlian they did before 
JeUo. No one wiU know if JeUo 
has lubricated the minds of 
PBJC students. One thing is 
sure though; raspberry JeUo is 

Student Attends 
School In Africa 

students come to PBJC from 
many parts of the state and 
country, but not many come 
from as far as Steve Urbano 
United Party Candidate for 
Frosh class Veep did — he came 
from Africa. 

Steve, a freshman majoring in 
pre-law, graduated from Wheel- 
us High School in Tripoli, Lybia, 
North Africa, where he lived 
for almost three years. 

"Wheelus is a small American 
school on the Air Force base 
with about 300 students in 
grades 9 through 12," says 
Steve. "Students attending 
Wheelus, come from all over 
the world, and represent almost 
every state in the union. 

State Surveys For 
New Buildings Due 

The purpose of the junior college is to provide 
a means for students to continue their program of 
education. However, the College Board Review says 
that from 1950-1960 American college enrollments dou- 
bled and now predicts by 1970 it will double again. 
These figures mean that day enrollment will jump from 
1,591 students in 1962, at PBJC, to 3,196 day students by 
1970. The number of evening students will equal the 
day students by 1970, making a total enrollment of 
over 7,000. 

What is to be done about their education and how 
will the state meet these growing needs? Somebody 
must find the answer, questions will have to be asked, 
and surveys must be taken of building needs. 

Essentially a survey of this type approves the long 
range expansion and projected buildings needed by 
a junior college. Just how much money will be used 
in each biennium from state funds and the bond issue, 
if passed, is based on a formula. This calculated for- 
mula provides for 148 sq. feet per full time student at a 
cost of $18.00 per square foot. Palm Beach Junior 
College has been approved for $2,851,000 dollars in 
additional construction. 

The first step is for the-school to conduct a survey 
of its needed facilities. The faculty of PBJC did this 
last year. Secondly, a team appointed by the State 
Department of Education is sent to study these plans. 
A team of six under the direction of Dr. Lee G. 
Henderson, an alumnus and the assistant director to the 
Division of Community Junior Colleges, has already 
been here on October 14 and 15 to conduct such a study. 
This team provides a check and balance, preventing 
any "hanky panky" on all plans. Thirdly, the survey is 
presented to the State Board of Education for final ap- 
proval. The architects are then chosen by the Board of 
Public Instruction, bids are awarded and construction 
may begin by the spring of 1964. 

Two previous surveys have been made of PBJC, 
one in 1955, and the other in 1957. The survey of 1963 
will provide priorities for many needed buildings that 
have been recommmended by the administration and 
faculty. The work has also resulted in the suggested 
development of new courses, such as a three-year 
program on Early Childhood Education and a course 
in air conditioning. Further development would provide 
for a building to house a planetarium, parking space 
for 2,000 cars, improving utilities and campus lighting. 

There are, however, a number of top priority 
projects which will be handled immediately. Expanding 
the physical education building, a two story addition 
to the library, a computer lab in the Technical Building, 
lecture halls in the addition for the auditorium and 
finally a swimming pool to enable the college to offer 
instruction in swimming are first on the roster. 

Steve is not new to Florida. 
From 1957 to 1959 he Uved in 
Lantana and attended Lake 
Worth Junior High. At present 
Steve's father is stationed at 
Homestead Air Force Base. 

Besides Lybia, Steve has lived 
in the foreign countries of Eng- 
land and Germany and has 
taken his senior trip to Greece. 
He has lived in California, New 
York, Oklahoma, Florida and 
traveled through much of the 
United States.

Misfits To Defend Flag Tag Title 


MR. KING who is in charge 
says Touch Football is a non- 
contact sport and that he is dis- 
appointed with the roughness of 
some of the players and the un- 
sportsmanliice conduct of some 
of the teams. The officials do 
the best job they can and it's 
unsportsmanlike to critize and 
complain about the officials.

For the first time in tlie 
history of PBJC, bowling has 
become a part of the well- 
rounded physical education 
course offered here. 

The instructors include Miss 
Jane Leaf, Physical Education 
Instructor at PBJC, and instruc- 
tors from the Major League 
Lanes. The two class sessions 
meet on Fridays at 10:30 a.m. 
and 12:30 p.m. at the Major 
League Lanes. 

The first four weeks of the 
course were used to help stu- 
dents who have not bowled as 
much as others and to correct 
all mistalces of others. 

Starting in the seventh week 
of the course, handicap tourna- 
ments WiU be held. The tourna- 
ments include men and womens 
handicap singles, a double hand- 
icap and a team tourney. The 
reason for the different type of 
tournaments is to acclimate the 
members of the class to them.

Votes Marred By Cutting; 
SGA Veep 'Revote' Today 


Associate Editor 

Two run offs and a "re-vote" are taking place 
at the polls today as a result of last Friday's elections 
in which almost 700 PBJC students voted. 

In the Oct. 25 election Barbara Campbell swept 
the office of Freshman Secretary and Barbara Bayless 
was elected Freshman Treasurer. Both are United Party 

KirK Middleton and Tom 
Henris are in a run off for 
Freshman Class President at 
the polls today. Neither received 
the needed 50 per cent majority 
in the first election. 

The office of Frosh Veep is 
also being voted on today. 
Competing for the position in 
the runoff are Ron Gomto and 
Ruth Haggerty. 

SGA vice president is Ijeing 
"re-voted" today. Bruce 
Anmierman, SGA president, 
explained, "Due to faulty 
equipment and the cutting of 
the ballots for the office of 
SGA veep, the ballots were 
marred hi such a way that 
they could not be correctly 
tabulated, and the vote Jias 
to be taken over." Opponents 
for the office are Joe Caudlll 
and John Larsen. 
Voting stations are located at 
the student lounge, library and 
tech building. All students are 
urged to vote. 

Three 'Big' 
Issues Pass 

The three issues appearing at 
the bottom of the ballot sheet 
last week were carried with a 
"yes" vote by the students of 

With only a 99-vote margin, 
the $5 activity fee uicrease 
proposed to support an inter- 
collegiate sports program was 
passed. The election results of 
this issue will be presented to 
the faculty committee. 

In the second issue, students 
were asked to state whether 
they used the student calendars; 
the majority voting said yes. 
The opinion will be used in 
determining whether the cal- 
endars should be printed next 
year with student activity funds 
at a cost of 51,200. 

Students in the third issue 
overwhelmingly voted "yes" — 
they did favor continuing the 
ten o'clock break. The student 
body's opinion wiU be sent to 
the administration for consider- 
ation when the administration 
plans next year's time schedule 
of classes. 


'Drive Successful' Glynn; 
Over $4,000 Collected 

With $4,642.31, the Alumni As- 
sociation has wound up its Dol- 
lars for Scholars Drive to raise 
funds for needy scholars at 

This vear's drive was co- 
ordinated with The Post-Times, 
whose newsboys distributed con- 
tribution envelopes to residents 
of Palm Beach County and 
collected them. 

"It was a ver>- successful 
drive," commented Paul Glynn, 
Dean of Student Pei-sonnel. "We 
owe much to Merle Ellis, Tom- 
my Thompson and the newsboys, 
aU of The Post-Times, for the" 
many extra hours they spent 
working on the drive. 

Jerry Hastings, a Post-Times 
newsboy, junior at Forest Hill 
and son of Mr. and Mrs. T. B. 
Hastings of 5555 Garden Ave., 
was awarded a $200 scholarship 
for collecting the most "scholai- 

More than $2,800 will be left 
in the fund after close to §800

$1000 set aside to finance next 
vear's drive. Expenses of the 
drive included the printing of 
some 103 thousand envelopes, 
mailing cost, printing of 10 
display signs and the recording 
Df 10 information records. 

Dean Glvnn estimated that 20 
scholarships, $150, each will be 
passed out as soon as possible. 
In the spring of this year, 
depai-tments requested a needed 
number of scholarships and in 
special cases recommended re- 
cipients. Dr. Manor placed pri- 
orities on some of the requests 
depending on importance of the

Bouquets And Stones 



The Beachcomber is your paper. We operate on 
your money. It stands to reason that our main purpose 
should be to please you — the students of Palm Beach 
.Junior College. 

However, there is one thing that a newspaperman 
learns very quickly, it is impossible to please everyone 
all the time or, for that matter, anytime. Surelj' there 
would be a lack of reader interest if all of our readers 
were completely uncritical. When either a brick or 
a bouquet is tossed at a newspaperman he is flattered. 
He knows that his material is being read. 

The Beachcomber doesn't mind bricks. We adore 
bouquets. We want to be read and it is this Editor's 
ambition to produce a college newspaper that will be 
read by every student, cover to cover. 

The Beachcomber is a growing newspaper in a 
growing school. Just as the school has taken steps to 
accommodate the ever-increasing enrollment, the 
Beachcomber is following in its footsteps. This 'issue 
marks the first in a "modernization program" designed 
to cope with the expansion of newsworthy events on 
Dur campus and an organized imagination is in opera- 
tion to give our paper a "new look." Within a month, 
the Beachcomber will be able to hold its own— in con- 
tent and style— on any campus in the country 

Throw a brick and we will say "We're son-v" 
and work harder to correct the situation. Throw a 
bouquet and we will say "thank-you" and still work

Students Vs. Tropics 

Now Is The Time 


The time Is now! Tomorrow will be too late. Florida 
is now at its crossroads and either we make the 
important decision now and move forward, or we will 
strangle ourselves in the mire of stagnancy. Which 
will it be? The decision is up to us. 

It is true that government spending has in recent 
years become enormous and our taxes have proportion- 
ately increased, but the important question that we 
face today, that of building better schools for higher 
education, is not a question of taxation; it is one of 
enterprise. The proposed amendment to article Xll 
of the Florida State Constitution will permit the state 
to sell bonds, if ratified by the voters on November 
fifth, under a reasonable limit in order to contract 
funds for the use of building much needed classrooms 
and buildings for the slate's educational institutions 
of higher learning. Palm Beach Junior College alone 
expects to receive .'i;2,8()0,OOO worth of funds for the 
building of its own urgently needed additional class- 

Florida can attain peak educational standards only 
through the support of its citizens. If we expect to 
compete with the rest of the nation and draw industry 
and prosperity to our state, we must provide belter 
educated people to meet modem standards. For a more 
prosperous life and a brightei' future, let us all support 
and vote for issue number two on November fifth 
entitled, "Constitutional Amendment to Article XII." 

Renew Millage Tax 


Every two years, the property owners of Palm 
Beach County renew their vote of confidence in their 
children by renewing the scliool millage tax. This 
much-needed tax is used to provide bus service, to 
repair and alter classrooms and equipment, and in 
general, to keep our schools parallel to our growing 
population. As the number of children eligible to attend 
school grows, it becomes increasingly apparent that 
our facilities are becoming inadequate. In reference 
to the state survey made of Palm Beach County school 
facilities in March, 1963, we can note with disdain 
that more than 8,000 students are presently housed 
in sub-standard classrooms, and that many schools 
in Palm Beach County are using their libraries and 
cafeterias as classrooms. In October, there were more 
than 1,000 students on double session in county schools 
and unless an increase in millage tax is enacted, many 
more of our ever-increasing numbers of students will 
be forced to suffer- these needless ordeals. 

The fact is this: industry will settle only where 
it can be as.sured of an educated and intelligent 
populace. We need more industry in Palm Beach County 
and we will get it only if we are willing to help pay 
the nominal increasing costs of better education so 
we may provide the necessary qualified personnel 
needed to conduct the affairs of our modern world. 

This meager five mill increase will be placed before 
all registered voters who pay a real or personal property 
tax. Certainly this is not too much to ask of our citizens 
since the tax level in Florida is one of the lowest of all 
the levels in the fifty states. 

Primarily interesting to PBJC students is the fact 
that Palm Beach Junior College cannot receive any 
less than five per cent of the millage tax voted in 
by the citizens of the county, but in all probability, 
the college would receive much more than five per 

If you are not eligible to vote for this issue on 
November the fifth, and you know people who are 
eligible, impress upon them the importance of the school 
millage tax and try to persuade them to back this 
issue. This issue is of vital importance to every one 
of us and it is up to us to do as much as we can to in- 
sure its passage on November fifth. Remember, there 
is no substitute for education.

So you think the numbers 
game is illegal — well, it's not! 
To explain, I must start from 
the beginning, the very begin- 

At birth, the County of Hills- 
boro graciously gave me a birth 
certificate number, which regis- 
tered me in a large boolc that 
also had a number. It didn't 
matter, though ; 1 was too young 
to comprehend the vast mean- 
ing of it all. 

Soon after my fourteenth 
birthday I suddenly became 
aware of numbers in all their 
glory when I got my driver's 
Ucense (No. 1264100). Later 
there was social security (No. 
265-66-7544) , savings account 
(No. 9), bank account (No. 169), 
and bank number (0631-f)640) 
_ I entered school to learn, 
seeking to establish myself as 
a leader, an individual. Individ- 
ualism, I was sure, could be 
found there! Oh, well — even 
my car lost its identity. No 
longer was it the "Mighty IVIidg- 
et", but No. 276. 

The big wide world beckoned, 
so I answered. "Surely they've 
run out of numbers," I thought. 
But, alas! There were badge 
numbers (No. 869), voting regis- 
trations (Nos. 61-7055 and 9555), 
library cards (No. 8976) and 
ID'S (No. 2849). The thing tliat 
haunted me most was that 
awful Social Security number. 
Everywhere I went somebody 
just had to know it. 

Numbers finally hit the mass 
of people in 7-digit phone num- 
bers, direct dialing (Area No. 
305), and zip codes (No. 
33460) . 

I wasn't really worried about 
the "cross-number" puzzle until 
I found myself dialing my zip 
code and ailing my area code. 
Recently I've found a number 
of students with the same stu- 
dent number — seems they use 
their zip code for convenience. 

There isn't even consolation in 
death — there's a death certifi- 
cate No., a casket number, a 
lot number and a plot, num- 

What a world our great math- 
ematical geniuses have laid out 
for us! 

In Or Out? 

I am writing this information 
for the benefit of those students 
who are new on this campus 
and for those students who 
already know the score but 
want to confirm their status. 1 
have classified this material as 
either IN, defined as socially 
acceptable, de rigeur, or sharp, 
and OUT, defined as socially 
incorrect, declasse, or square. 

Consider dress and appear- 
ance on this campus. Girls, it 
is IN to be slim and pretty, 
inexcusably OUT to be fat and 
ugly. Boys, it is OUT to be a 
101 lb. weaking, IN to be virile 
and masculine. Unfortunately 
Madras has become so IN that 
it is OUT, whUe yellow umbrel- 
las are so far OUT they are 
IN. Of course, anyone can 
achieve an IN status by merely 
copying an IN person, deplora- 
bly democratic though it is. But 
speech habits are difficult to 
change. It doesn't matter what 
you say as much as how you 
say it. Even those who speak 
and dress incorrectly may be 
considered IN by the nature of 
their superior intelligence. To 
be doing well in college has the 
utmost IN status. Football 
heroes who are top muscular 
belong in cages and are OUT.

A Point Of View 

Once Upon A Time 
A Perfect College 

By Kenny M. Connell 

Once upon a time. In a sunny 
town, by the sea, there was a 
college. The college was the 
pride and joy of the townspeo- 
ple, who looked upon it as the 
great storehouse of all knowl- 
edge, culture, and freedom of 
thought. The townspeople en- 
couraged all their children to 
go to the college and become 
bettor educated than their par- 
ents were. The townspeople did- 
n't want the world to be in an 
even lousier condition than it 
was. So they gave half of all 
their tax money to the college. 
Sometimes, when there wasn't 
much tax money, they would 
hold public auctions of their 
valuables and give the proceeds 
to the college. 

Tlie students of the college 
were divided into two types: 
male and female. The female 
students regarded it as an honor 
to go to the college instead of 
having to stay home and cook 
and scarcely ever spoke. They 
all wore convent clothes and did 
their best to remain unobtru-

"Be young and fair and debo- 
nair, be sociable, have a" — 
tooth cleaned: 

I know exactly what you're 
thinking, Dave. Felt the same 
way about it. She was a good 
friend of mine and stUl I didn't 
trust her. Just wasn't sure, so 
I refused, as you did. 

But you know, time goes on, 
your feelings and ideas change 
and, in turn, attitudes often 
switch from let us say, what 
used to be reluctance to — not 
so reluctant. This, I suppose, is 
why I changed my mind. Dave, 
I know you would much rather 
have an experienced mechanic 
work on your Austin than some- 
one who is inexperienced or just 
learning the business. As men- 
tioned before, time goes on, 
maybe a week or so, you 
change your mind. Let the man 
who is learning get in on the 
job. Just because one is inexpe- 
rienced doesn't mean he can't 
do a good job. 

Naturally, anybody beginning 
a certain type of work will be 
inexperienced. This also per- 
tains to the Dental Hygiene 
students we have at our school. 
Answer me this, Dave, how does 
one leave this status of inexperi- 
ence? Applying yourself to 
what ever you're doing is the 
closest answer. AU these stu- 
dents want is a chance, an 
opportunity to prove their abili- 

^- . , .. 

You know these girls aren t 

any "slouches." They're 

screened from head to toe. 

Applications, nation wide tests, 

interviews, orientation exams, 

shoes shined, uniforms rosy 

white — sort of like the Marine 

Corps. And these girls don't go 

"goo-goo eyeing'" around the 
campus either. 

I tell you one thing, Dave, as 
for myself, I am impressed. I 
can't help but tell you how 
mistaken or disillusioned I was 
about this whole affair of having 
my teeth cleaned by someone 
merely because they are new 
hands at this type of work. 

Listen to me a minute, will 
you, Dave? Don't get so impa- 
tient. Relax, let me finish! She 
did a fine job on my teeth! No 
horse play, or joking around. 
She took her job seriously al- 
though there were occasional 
moments of despair. She never 
once lost her approach to the 
job, namely positive. Time 
wasn't of the essence. That 
rush-rush feeling was complete- 
ly absent, uality of workman- 
Qship was her purpose and this 
she accomphshed. 

Sure, 1 had those same silly 
comical ideas. Thought my 
mouth was gonna get aU cut 
up, gums torn to shreds and 
teeth plucked out by the dozen. 
Never happened. 

One thing that really im- 
pressed me besides her profes- 
sional attitude was the use of 
a rod stain. She applied this 
stuff to my teeth in order to 
show where she had missed in 
cleaning. Somewhat like an X- 
ray, pointing to what can't be 
seen by the naked eve. 

Sorry for repeating, Dave, but 
I want you and everybody to 
know that their isn't a thing to 
worry about. Let one of the 
Dental Hygienists clean your 
teeth next time they ask. 

The use of the cliche, what 
d'ya want for 50c? Blood! In 
any case, 50c is all they 


The male students were liber- 
al, individualistic young men 
who wore carefully tailored 
suits, opera capes, and top hats. 
The major characteristics of the 
male students were: intelli- 
gence, purity of thought and 
deed, culture, and the ability to 
make A's in Freshman biology. 

The student body, as was 
their right, invited many excit- 
ing guest speakers to their 
College Forum. Some of the 
famous names were: Lawrence 
Welk, Gus Hall, Carl Ticlntire, 
Grace Metalious, B. S. Pulley, 
Fabian, Man Mountain Dean, 
Roy Acuff, Oral Roberts, Harold 
Robbins, Mamie Van Doren. 

The college had a happy and 
productive year. The students 
went away from the college 
with courage restored in the 
Flag, the Constitution, and Bob- 
by Kennedy. And, as they walk 
down the aisle with tears in 
their eyes but smiles on their 
lips, they praised God for hav- 
ing the opportunity to attend the 
greatest instrument of knowl- 
edge, free thought, and liberal 
education in history— their col- 

Life's problems may be 
the ladder of growth; or the 
walls of a prison. 

Something has to be said 
about the social clubs on cam- 
pus. Actually I dislike devoting 
the space to these particular 
organizations. Social clubs have 
done nothing to deserve recogni- 
tion. They don't deserve the 

Granted, every once in awhile, 
the clubs take time out to put 
up a couple of posters around 
school. These intermittant acts 
of campus service make for good 
publicity. Most of the time, how- 
ever, the social clubs are con- 
cerned only with tlieir "club 
images" and, indeed, their own 
personal images ... (the cool 
fraternity man ... the sharp 
sorority girl). 

Socially I place the social 
clubs at the bottom rung of that 
precious "social ladder." I do 
not consider a social club mem- 
ber as "sharp" or "cool" just 
because they are in a social 
club. I have friends in social 
clubs (at least I did) and they 

are good people perhaps I 

would even be moved to de- 
scribe their personalities as 
"sharp". The majority of social 
club members, however, use 
their club names as a crutch. 

The way social clubs handle 
certain situations its ri- 
diculous! Pledging on the Palm 
Beach campus is a farce. The 
pledging format is geared to the 
intelligence of a first grader. I 
wouldn't be surprised to see 
"blood brother" ceremonies one 
day in the lounge. The social 
clubs have turned the lounge 

1. I didn't fiU out a sweater 
and I didn't look very attractive 
in a sleeveless, low-cut gown. 

2. I wanted to do as I wished 
and think for myself instead of 
being led around by a bunch 
of sorority sisters. 

3. I had never gone into 
womens's clubs and organiza- 
tions before I came to college 
and I didn't want to start. 

4. I am a male. 

Good character is neither

into a throe-ring circus com- 
plete with clowns, baboons, and 
monkeys. Surely pledging is a 
needed facet in a social club 
but there is a wrong way (the 
PBJC way) and a constructive 
way (never seen on this cam- 
pus.) . , , , 

Perhaps the social clubs 
should take stock of their proce- 

I think it would be tremen- 
dous if each social club had a 
little plot of ground far out on 
the campus. They could build 
little club houses, paint their 
names above the door. It would 
be sort of like a make-believe 
"Greek Row," complete with 
fraternity and sorority houses. 
I think the clubs should also 
change their names. How about 
the Rockets, the Wildcats, the 
Tornadoes, the Mickey Mice, 
the Cool Cats, and the Tigers? 

Many students, tired of social 
clubs' attitudes and immaturi- 
ties, would be pleased and re- 
lieved to see the clubs set in 
their deserved places. . . .in 
club houses with "kid stuff" 

names. ^ 


As it is now we have only 
a bunch of kids called "the 
Rockets" trying to outclown a 
bunch of kids caUed "the Mic- 
key Mice."

At Political Union 

The Political Union of Palm

first of two dinners at Ed

Two excellent guest speakers, 
Mr. Al Zalla, attorney and 
chairman of the Democratic 
Party in Palm Beach County, 
and Mr. Jerry Thomas, state 
representative from Palm 
Beach County, provided the en- 
tertainment for 50 members and 
their guests. 

First speaker, Mr. Zalla, 
presented a speech on the dif- 
ference between the two party 
system in America and the mul- 
tiple party system in Europe. 
He emphasized the point that 
in Europe, the various parties 
have their coalition after the 
election rather than before, in 
contrast to our political conven- 
tions here in America. 

Mr. Thomas spoke next on the 
importance of voting for the 
individual rather than by party 
affiliation in political elections. 
He emphasized the fact that not 
enough qualified people are 
getting into politics today for 
fear they will be attacked by 
the press, TV and individuals.

before he could fiaisli the first page of his exam, tiio Regents

ajiplied for an athletic scholar.shi)), but ho had, alas, only a single 
athletic skill- picking up heolwes with his toes— and this, aliis, 
aroused only fleeting enthusiasm among the coaches. 

Anil then- hniijjy day!— Leonid learned of the student loan 
plan: he could borrow memey for his tuition ami n'.\Y.\y it in 
easy installments after he left school! 

Happily Leonid enrolled in the Southeastern Montana (bl- 

lege of Lanolin and Ro.stonition Drama and happily l)ogan .-i 
college career that grew happier year by year. Indeed, it be- 
came altogether ecstatic in liis senior year becaiisf! Leonid met 
a coed named Anna Livia Plurabelle with hair like beaten gold 
and eyes like two sockets full of Lake Louise. Love gripped 
them in its !>ig tnoist palm, and they were betrothed on Wt. 
CJrispin's Day. ' 

Happily they made plans to he married immediately after 
commencement— plans, aliis, that, were never to come to fruition 
because Leonid, alas, learned that Anna Livia, like liiniself, 
was in college on a student loan, which meant that he not only 
had to repay his own loan after graduation but idso Anna 
Livia's and tlie job, alas, that was waiting for Leonid at the 
Butte Otter Works simply did not pay enough, alas, to cover 
both loans, plus rent and food and clothing and television 

Heavy hearted, Leonid and Anna Livia sat down and lit 
Marlboro Cigarettes and tried to find an answer to their prob- 
lem—and, sure enough, they did! I do not know whether or 
not Marlboro Cigarettes helped fchcm find an answer; all I know 
is that Marlboros taste good and look good and filter good, and 
when the clouds gather and the world is black us the pit from 
polo to ])ole, it is a heap of comfort and .satisfaction to bo sure 
that Marlboros will always provide the same easy pleasure, 
the same unstinting tobacco flavor, in all times and climes and 
conditions. That's all I know. 

Leonid and Anna Livia, I say, did find an answer— a very 
simple one. If their student loans did not come 'due until they 
left school, why then they just wouldn't leave school ! So after 
receiving their bachelor's degrees, they re-enrolled and tt)ok 
master's degrees. After that they took doctor's degrees- loads 
and loads of them— until today Leonid and Anna Livia, both 
aged 87, both still in school, hold doctorates in Philosopliy, 
Humane Letters, Jurisprudence, Veterinary Medicine, Civil 
Engineering, Optometry, Woodpulp, and Dewey 13ecimals. 

Their student loans, at the end of the last fiscal year, 
amounted to ii combined total of nineteen million dollars— a 
sum which they probably would have found some difficulty in 
repaying liad not the Department of tlie Interior recently de-

bit more tennis than he had 
anticipated. In liis first singles 
match, he lost to Rick Easton, 
after a hard-fought battle whicli 
lasted 45 games. The next day 
in the mixed doubles ho and his 
partner, Lorraine Highan played 
a total of 55 games before they 
finally beat their opponents with 
the last set reading the score 
of 16-14. Mr. King, head of 
inti-a-mural activities, said that 
he thought Gary had "probably 
set some kind of endurance 
recoi'd in his two marathon 

Mr. King also said that soccer 
will be the next intra-mural 
activity. However, as yet he 
could not give a definite date 
as to when it will start. 

At 10:00, on Friday, Novem- 
ber 8, there will be a handball 
organizational meeting in the 
gym. At this meeting handball 
tournaments, and their location 
will be discussed. 

Last year, 8 people played, 
and the matches were held at ' 
the Y.M.C.A. Mr. McGirt said 
that there would be set dates 
for play and no mutual agi'ee- 
ments between players. Last 
year awards were given for 
first, second and third places. 
If anyone Is interested, they can 
sign up in the gym or see Mr. 
McGirt in office No. 2 and 
attend the meeting. 

Last Thursday, October 24, 
the T.K.L.'s played the Circle 
K's in an important flag-tag 
football game. 

Monday, November 5th, co-ed 
table tennis begins. Tlie last

tional meeting, Nov. 5, at 10 
a.m. in the gym. One boy and 
one girly mal<e a team. Teams 
may sign up in tlie locker rooms

Misfits Slam Rocks 

The undefeated Misfits com- 
pleted the regular season on a 
successful note by defeating the 
second place. Rocks 28-0. 

The Misfits scored the first 
time they got the ball on a 15 
yard end sweep by halfback 
Marshall Faillaee. Bob Petretti 
converted. Later in the first 
half, the Misfits again got on 
the scoreboard with a two-yard 
run by quarter-back John 
Holmes doing the damage. The 
conversion attempt failed. 

In the second half, the Misfits 
penetrated the Rock defense for 
their third score. Dave Lee 
scored on a pass from Holmes. 
The conversion failed. On the 
next set of downs, the Rocks 
mounted their only serious 
threat of tlie day. All hopes of 
a Rock score diminished wlien 
Petretti intercepted a pass and 
ran 81 yards for the score. 
Howard Ennis converted.

Circle KKO'sTKL 

A Circle K victory over TKL 
threw the Social League into a 
three-way tie for first place. 
Circle K won 14-0. Bob Molinari, 
Circle K quarterbaclt, accounted 
for all of the game's scoring. 
Early in the first half, a run 
by Molinari put Circle K ahead 
to stay. TKL had a TD nullified 
in the first half, because of a 
self-inflicted penalty. This was 
the only serious threat posted 
by TKL. 

Early in the second half, 
Molinari dropped back to pass, 
but could find no open receiv- 
ers. He cut to his left and sped 
45 yards for the score. Molinari 
scored tlie conversion on almost 
the exact play. 

Fugitives Sting Sting Rays 

The Fugitives, led by Harry 
(the Horse) Jorgenson, ran over 
the Sting Ray 44-12. It was the 
first game for both teams. 

Jorgenson continually ran 
through the Sting Ray defense 
and scored on runs of forty and 
fifty yards. Horace Wise also 
scored for the Fugitives. Wayne 
Mesterzat and Francis Alexan- 
der accounted for the only Sting 
Ray scores. 

American iron and steel 
companies and other ferrous 
groups spent $92 million for 
technological research and de- 
velopment, according to the Na-

Intercollegiate Sports 


By press time the fate of the Intercollegiate Sports 
Program will be in the hands of the faculty athletic 
committee. Action of this committee, headed by Mr. 
Sutherland, will decide if this key issue will open the 
door for an intercollegiate sports program at this col- 

The faculty athletic committee stated that the S.G.A. 
survey of intercollegiate athletics was not realistic in 
having basketball as the only intercollegiate sport. Other 
sports which will be included in the program are 
baseball, swimming, track, tennis, and golf. The S.G.A. 
also made the mistake of not having all the monetary 
values in the program such as the administrative and 
coaching costs. They suggested the cost would run 
•1)3300 which would cover only half of what this college 
would need for a sufficient intercollegiate sports pro- 

Other points brought out by the committee were 
that a permanent faculty committee on sports should 
be made up of teaching faculty members. 

The college should employ a staff member to 
organize and develop a sports program in 1963-1964, 
for the academic year of 1964-65, which would include 
the above mentioned sports. 

The main point which the faculty sports committee 
brought out was an increase in the student activity 
fee of five dollars which was needed to satisfy the 
financial requirements of an intercollegiate sports 
program. This issue was not publicized too much around 
the campus for some unknown reason. This showed 
a lack of knowledge or concern on the part of the 
students interested in getting intercollegiate sports here. 
During tlie campaign for the freshman officers, there 
was not one poster suggesting that the student vote 
for the five-dollar increase in the activity fee. This 
was a poor job of planning by the person or persons 
responsible for intercollegiate sports becoming part of 
the activities here. 

The philosophy of the intercollegiate program is 
not intended to hurt the intramural sports and service 
programs of the school. 

All facilities available for an intercollegiate sports 
would not hurt the well-rounded intramural program 
as each side would co-operate with other in every 
way possible. 

Everyone knows that PBJC does not have any 
facilities for any type of event, so we would probably 
use the same procedures as Forest Hills and Riviera 
High did in using the Palm Beach High School gym 
or any facility available. 

The Faculty Activity Committee and Dr. Manor 
will either approve or disapprove this issue. The next 
step on the ladder of .success is the College Advisory 
Board; fro in there to the School Board and Superintend- 
ent and finally back to the Faculty Activity Committee 
for final plans on this key issue. 

Seventeen per cent of the 
University of Florida's buildings 
are World War 11 surplus build- 
ings. Many of them would be 
replaced with permanent build- 
ings to be financed through 
funds obtained by the College 
Building Amendment to be 
voted on November 5.

Alpha Fi 26-0 

Chi Sig remained in a first 
place tie as they trounced win- 
less Alpha Fi 26-0. Chi Sig 
controlled the game against an 
outmanned Alpha Fi team. 

In the first half, Chi Sig 
tallied on a beautifully executed 
45 yd. pass play from Jay 
Groover to Ron Fullwood. After 
the liicltoff, Alpha Fi mounted 
their only serious threat of the 
day. They moved the baU to Chi 
Sig's four yard line only to lose 
the ball on downs. Chi Sig then 
marched 76 yards for their 
second TD of the afternoon. Ron 
Fullwood ran the final ten 

In the second half, Chi Sig 
took the Itickoff, and moved to 
the mid-field stripe. At that 
point, Saxon toolt the ball on 
a well-executed double reverse 
and scored standing up. After 
a pass interception, Chi Sig 
scored for the fourth and final 
time. This time, a ten yard pass 
from Groover to Fullwood did 
the damage. Groover passed to 
Saxon for the conversion.

pass-lateral-run play with Jun 
Duche going the final 30 yards.

The Misfits continued their 
winning ways by defeating a 
rough, tough Marauder team, 

The Misfits scored first as 
John Holmes ran up the middle 
40 yards for the TD. The con- 
version was no good as Buddy 
Payne blocked the conversion 
attempt. The Misfits defense 
contained the Marauders offense 
on the next set of downs. 

Then Andy Anderson punted 
to John Holmes who returned 
the punt 40 yards for the TD. 
The conversion attempt was 
good as John Holmes ran up 
the middle for the two points. 

In the second half the Misfits 
scored quicklv as John Holmes 
hit Marshall Faillaee with a 
pass on the five- yard line 
and Faillaee ran in for the 
score. The conversion attempt 
fkfled. The final score for the 
Misfits came as Hotoics teamed 
with Faillaee again, for the TD. 
Holmes then hit Steve Charles 
for the two points. The Ma- 
rauders finally got on the score- 
board as Andy Anderson passed 
to Chuck Turner 60 yards for 
6 pts. The conversion attempt 
was no good. 

The defensive standout for the 
losers was Buddy Payne as he 
intercepted two passes and 
pressured the Misfit's backfxeld 
all afternoon. 

Tlie hard-hitting Fuptiws 
rolled to their second \n«or> ot 
the intramural season, by beat 
ing the winless Engineers 24*. 

The Fugitives wasted no tinw 
in getting on the scoreboard, as 
Pew Wee Wise scampered 15 
yards for the initial spout 
score. Harty Jorgenson con 
verted. The next time the Fu?i 
tives got the ball. Jaclt Tarrant

There was little action m th**

hapless Paranoids, 58-0. Bret 
Davis was the big gun for the 
winners, scoring four TDs and 
a conversion. Rick Buckner was

In the last issue of the Beach- 
comber, readers were informed 
on the success of former PBJC 
students. However, this fine edi- 
torial failed to mention those 
who didn't quite make the 
grade. Since this is a democrat- 
ic paper with no favoritism, 
prejudice-Ism, communism, or 
rheumatism, we feel that we 
must relate to our unenlightened 
patrants the whole truth of the 
matter. Take for instance Lanny 
Liverlip, former president and 
acting secretary of the PBJC 
"Betterment for Humming 
Birds" Association. He now has 
a large Dock of yellow-breasted 
sapsuckers and is a model pris- 
oner at Alcatraz. That just goes 
to prove that two different kinds 
of birds can get along in one 


Then there is Mergatroid Slush- 
pump, who will always be 
remembered for her acting abil- 
ity and success on the JC stage. 
She recently copped the lead 
role in the much heralded mov- 
ie, "The Carpetbaggers." She 
plays the part of the bag. 
Another local drama star cap- 
tured the heart of his director 
and won the role of the carpet. 
We have reports that he was 
always being stepped on around 
here too. 

The restaurant and food ser- 
vice department is also very 
proud of one of its fine students 
and a former graduate. Her- 
bert Fink is now employed as 
a busboy at Herman's Hide- 
away in Frankfurt, Germany. 
We also hear that he recently 
won an essay contest. His tcpic 
was "How to Eat Peanut But- 
ter and Whistle." He sent it 
in with the head of his ne ighbor- 
hood grocer and really got ahead 
in his field. 

Jean Chromosome, winner of 
last year's Haveabell prize, is 
engaged as an anatomy analyz- 
er. She recently crossed a croc- 
odile with a group of abalone 
and came up with a croc-a- 

Jim Graves, who was an 
outstanding dissecting student, 
has made his mark in the world 
as a crematory consultant. He 
has had a burning desire to 
promote better relations be- 
tween company and customer. 
This trait was no doubt a result 
of a good management back- 
ground here at school. His com- 
pany gives Top Value Stamps 
and has the reputation of being 
the last to let you down. 

Peter Picalock, whose thesis 
on cell inclusions rocked the 
Biology department a few years 
ago, has gained the respect and 
admiration of the staff at Rai- 
ford State Prison. He has had 
a lot of breaks; however, he 
feels that this has anly hindered 
his relations with his superiors. 
He is presently very active as 
a prison prom steering commit- 
tee advisor. 

Another former graduate, Fan- 
ny Fruitfly, has also made good. 
She is currently studying the 
trisexual discrepancies of the 
female mango. This is 3"^ 
peachy, but we feel her ability 
stems from a background ot 
throwing apples at the traffic 
when she was here at school.

Students Leave Mark 
at Gainesville \ 

Many PBJC students were at 
Gainesville last week-end for 
the University of Florida Home- 
coming. One amusing incident 
occurred, (many amusing things 
happened) at a GainesviUe 
hamburger drive-in. 

Six Palm Beach students or- 
dered eight hamburgers, six 
mUk shakes, and six orders of 
french fries. After a short pe- 
riod of time, the waitress 
brought a tray of food to the 
students. The students, of 
course, assumed that the order 
was their own. They started to 
"chow down". At least two 
"chomps" were taken out of 
each hamburger when one of 
the students realized that they 
had someone else's order by 
mistake. The students put the 
hamburgers (already half eaten) 
back into the bags 'n back on 
the tray. The waitress was call- 
ed. After surveying the situation 
the waitress agreed that she 
had made a mistake. The wait- 
ress than took the order down 
to the rightful owners, who were 
just two cars down from the 
PBJC students. One can easily 
realize the surprise when the 
people opened up their ham- 
burger bags to find half eaten 
burgers !

Social Clubs On Campus 


ALPHA FI recently discov- 
ered they have been first on 
the scholarship plaque three 
times. This is the greatest hon- 
or any fraternity has rated. 

Their view on pledging is, 
"The club strives to enrich the 
mind, insofar as social life is 
concerned, without interfering 
with the education of the indi- 

That's a good idea for all 
social clubs to consider. 

The sister of TBI-0 feel 
pledging should be "put on a 
more civilized plane." They 
congi-atulate the Beachcomber 
on its recent editorial concern- 
ing pledging and hope other 
social cli'bs will follow suit. 

This year Tri-0 has taken a 
kinder attitude toward pledges. 
To help their pledges, TriO 
members had a Turnabout Day 
last Thursday showing pledges 
how to really get into the swing 
of things. 


Pledges are planning a rum- 
mage sale to be held November 
2. Any clothing contributions 
will be gladly accepted. By the 
way, do you need something to 
wear to the Anniversaiy Dance,

To Visit Campus 


On November 5, Dr. Chester. 
E. Swor, author of Very Truly 
Yours, li We Dared, and The 
Teenage Slant, will be speaking 
to the students of PBJC. His 
visit to the campus will be 
sponsored by the Baptist Stu-

Dr. Swor graduated from Mis-

annual Blood Drive. Wednesday, 
November 30, all students are 
urged to donate and reminded 
that the blood donated can be 
used by any member of their 
family in case of an emergen- 

This drive is a non-profit 
project. All those who donate 
are showing pride and concern 
about tlieir class members. So, 

NITY has been active. The fra- 
ternity activities began with the 
formal bid party held in the 
main ball room of tlie Palm 
Beach Towers. Featured guest 
was Watson B. Duncan II, past 
sponsor of Phi Da Di and hon- 
orary member. 


Pill Da Di is aware of its 
responsibilities with the "Wish- 
ing Well". A pledge wsrk ses- 
sion was scheduled for October 
20th — weeds were pulled and 
the bushes cut back. The "Wish- 
ing Well" pump is even working 
now. A large scale landscaping 
project is being mapped-out by 
the pledge class in order to 
make the "Wishing Well" pre- 
sentable before open house. 

The pledge class has also 
contributed to its political pro- 
motion of the "VOTE-YES-NOV.

Founded in 1918 
Kappas Have Grown 

Phi Theta Kappa is the only 
national honorary scholastic fra- 
ternity represented on the PBJC 
campus. Founded in 1918 in a 
small school in Missouri, it has 
grown in size and stature. It 
has achieved such recognition 
that currently it is known as 
"the Phi Beta Kappa for junior 

Since the names of those to 
be tapped are kept secret until 
the assembly, no student is 
notified that he has met the 
requirements. However, each 
student can quickly determine 
his chances by reviewing the 
requirements lor membership. 
To be eligible for induction into 
Phi Theta Kappa, a student 
must have completed one full 
semester at PBJC. He must 
have carried a minimum load 
of 15 semester hours for which 
he had maintained a 3.0 average 
or better. In addition, he must 
pass faculty approval. This last 
requirement was included for 
the first time this semester.

PBJCs Phi Theta Kappa 
Plan Many Projects 


The Delta Omicron Chapter ot 
Phi Theta Kappa at Palm 
Beach Junior College is ex- 
panding its role on campus to 
include active service to all 
students, members, and non- 
members. The first big event 
of the year was the tapping 
ceremony on Oct. 29, 1963, 






However, Phi Theta Kappans 
are also planning several proj- 
ects that involve all PBJC stu- 
dents. At the present time, 
members are helping the PBJC 
players sell season tickets to the, 
plays. They are also helping 
distribute publicity handbills on 
campus for the drama depart- 

PTK rccentlj- completed plans 
to participate in the College Day 
at PBJC on November 9. 

Also, the first step toward 
establishing a workable tutoi-inj^ 
system for students seeking help 
with certain subjects has boon 
taken by PTK. Recently, t li o 
club sent out questionnaires to 
each department head i-o- 
questing the names of students 
who might be qualified to tutor 
certain subjects. The return has 
been most helpful and most 
department heads have re- 
sponded with additional advieo 
that will be used in setting up 
the tutoring system. So, w<itcli 
the bulletin for details. 

All of these projects fit in with 
the special effort that Phi Thotii 
Kappa is making to expand the 
academic honorary society into 
a working, active organization. 
The feeling of the members was 
best expressed by the clula 
president, Jerry Barrios, who 
stated, "We feel that member- 
ship should mean more than 
simply that the student has at 
one time in the past achieved 
a three-point average with an 
academic load of fifteen 

Legs Kill People 


A lot of things "kiU" a lot 
of people. But the one thing that 
really "Imocks 'em dead," is 
the show of knobby knees run- 
ning around the campus these 

Now, no matter what objec- 
tions anyone might raise, knees 
are not beautiful, they never 
have been, and they never wiU 
be. It would seem that girls 
would want to hide something 
so plain and unattractive, not 
offset them in a showy pa- 

A whole leg may be a very 
perfect thing and worthy of 
attention. So is that part of the

proper length. But what is 
gained by wearing clothes which

Combin'the Beach Campus 

Since 1930 JC 
Has Risen to 
'Outstanding Format' 


In 1930, PBJC was a straight 
liberal arts college with very 
few commercial courses. Dean 
Glynn feels the instructors were 
"superior and dedicated teach- 
ers that took a great deal of 
interest in the student as well 
as the subject matter." 

The main idea behind PBJC 
is the same now as it was then 
— the student will gain matunty 
when he is "given complete 
responsibility not given in other 
universities." The student is not 
just a number; but a person 
whose ideas should be heard. 


Examples of these as Dean 
Glynn states, "Under the lead- 
ership of Dr. Harold G. Manor 
the growth in the Palm Beach 
Junior College curriculum has 
been outstanding. Much effort 
and energj' went into the devel- 
opment of the Dental Hygiene 
program. It has developed into 
one of our finest terminal pro- 



No longer is PBJC a straight 

literal arts college to accommo- 
S toe Profe-ional peop e but

look in hairstyles is the "Dandy- 
Do", which is naturally soft 
with a wide wave. It can be 
worn upsweep or downsweep, 
short or long; according to the 
features. Ribbons and bands are 
being used to ornate this most 
simple straight new hair-do. 



Pool and Money Annual Pictures 

For Teenagers 

How often have you heard 
someone suggest, "Let's shoot 
some pool; I need the money." 
Much to the surprise of many, 
playing pool for money is illegal 
for anyone, not just those under 

Many teenagers are under the 
impression that as long as they 
play pool without gambling they 
are acting within the law. These 
same players are even more 
reassured when a law officer 
sees them playhig and goes on 
about his business. Many teen- 
agers feel that playing pool is 
not the same as speeding or 
drinking. This attitude is false. 
Gambling on the game is iUegal 
for anyone. The law states that 
gambling by any device in any 
place is illegal and punishable 
by $100 fine or 90 days in jail. 

Furthermore, the owner of 
any pool hall where pool is 
publicly played is subject to $1,- 
000 fine or twelve months In jail 
for allowing minors under 
twenty-one to play the game. 

Minors seem to feel that any- 
one may play pool. They feel 
this way because the police 
force wiU rarely interpose on 
anyone playing pool, either le- 
gally or illegally unless an 
outside complaint is registered 
with them. Actually the owners 
are as much to blame for this 
mistaken illusion of minors as 
they often overlook the condi- 
tions that obviously exist. Be- 
cause, minors can and do get 
away with playing illegally, the 
game draws youngsters (12-14 
yrs.) and this practice is terri- 

What is the solution to this 
problem? In a few words, stric- 
ter enforcement of the law, by 
both individuals and officials is

elsewhere if the recipient's 
course of study is not offered. 

In order to qualify for a local 
scholarship, an average of 3.0 
is mandatory. Applicants will be 
screened by a committee com- 
posed of Dean Allison, Mr. Tom 
Perry, Mr. Joseph Paine, Miss 
Barbara DiUon, and Mr. Craig

2 </3 Million For PBJC 


Editorial WIrlter 

On Wednesday morning of 
November 6th., a most gratify- 
ing and long awaited news story 
appeared before the eyes of 
Florida voters; the school bond 
issue had passed. Equally as 
gratifying was the fact that the 
amendment to article xn had 
passed by an overwhelming 
vote, indicating that the citizens 
of Florida have taken an active 

interest in their educational pro- 
gram and realize the urgent 
need for more buildings In 
which we must house our rapid- 
ly growing student population.' 

This giant step toward pros- 
perity can be attributed to vari- 
ous factors. One of the outstand- 
ing contributors to the issue's 
success is our own Dr. Manor 
who, with his many speeches, 
promoted the issue and brought 
it to the voters' attention most 
effectively. Dr. Manor receives 
our best congratulations and 

thanks for his most generous 
display of help in promoting the 

To the many stndenfe whs 
promoted the issue ffarooKh 
many facets including the use 
of bumper stickers, we taw 
only say that it is yon wb* 

We are overjoyed to see the 
amendment approved by such a 
strong m a n d a t fc. for oifly 
through crises similar to this 
one can we objectively view and 
understand the nature ol Amer- 

ica's strength. Our strength lies 
in our people. We possess the

alleged "retalitory" assault, 
aimied at Ron Johnson, Editor- 
in-Chief of the Beachcomber, 
was thwarted by a "tip-off," a 
quick acting Palm Beach Post- 
Times news reporter and West 
Palm Beach Police on Friday 
At approxunately 11:00 p.m. 
Johnson was working at the 
Pahn Beach Post-Times, when 
he received aphone call from 
a reliable source reporting that 
there were a number of boys 
described only as social club 
oeobers at Palm Beach Junior 
College, waiting for him in the 
Post-Times parking lot just off 
South Dixie in West Palm 
Beach. Johnson reported the 
caU to the Post-Times police 
reporter GlUle Scheel, Who 
promptly notified the West 
Palm Beach Police Depart- 

A squadron of police arrived 
at the Post-Times parking lot 
shortly before midnight, spotted 
the waiting parties, and pro- 
ceeded to investigate the situa- 

The boys were identified as 
John Laisen, Ward Wilson, 
Kane C. Wheeler, Keith VanMe- 
ter, Edward Degouw, and Ted 

Te5{ Culpepper, who withdrew 
from classes at Palm^l^fach 
Junior College recently?, 'twas 
jailed on a profane language 

The remamder of the boys 
under questioning were dis- 
missed. Jolmson did not file 
charges. Further investigation 
revealed that all were members 
of social clubs at PBJC. 

It is believed that the social 
club members were waiting for 
Johnson until he got off work 
at midnight to "discuss" a 
recent column written by John- 
son which appeared in the Nov. 
1 issue of the Beachcomber in 
which Johnson took the social 
clubs on the Palm Beach cam- 
pus to task.

The Cellar Door 

'I Place A Flower' 

By Ron Johnson Editor-In-Chiej 

Letters To The Editor 

In the Nov. 1 ediHon o! flie 
Beachcomber I handed Social 
club's on this campus a knife. 
In the past 12 days they have 
proceeded to "sllt'thehr own 
throats" as Palm Beach Jun- 
ior College looked on. 

From the Inter-Social Cluft 
Council on down through im- 
mature actions, nan-ow- 
minded thinking, and rumors 
the social clubbers came 
apart at tlie seams, took a 
nose dive and crash landed. 
I place a flower upon the 
renudns hi "thanks" to the 
social clubs for proving me 
a very good "judge" indeed. 

I think the "Letter to the 
Editor" composed by the Inter 
Social aub Council best exam- 
pllfles the core of social club 
thinldng toward my opinions 
and accusations revealed in the 
Nov. 1 instalhnent of the Cellar 
Door entitled "The Three Ring 

In Hie Ih-st place I would 
be embarrassed as a social 
club meml)er or a student of 
Mgher learning to be repre- 
sented by a letter so gramma- 
ticaliy incorrect. Secondly tlie 
letter is filled with untrutlis, 
gross generalizations, false 
accusations, and an obviously 
poor attempt at sarcasm. 

One of my first acts as Editor 
of the Beachcomber was to 
appoint a staff member (a social 
club member) to report all' 
social club news. It was my 
Intention to devote an entire 
ife -y I column to this minority group. 
' • f I suggest that each member of 
the ISCC check page ten of the 
Nov, 1 issue of the Beachcomb- 
er. Almost an entire page was 
devoted to social club news. 
This is not to mention three 
pictures of social club activities 
and each story reporting social 
club athletic endeavors on pages 
six and seven. How possibly can 
the ISCC. contend that I wish 
to censor all social club contri- 
butions to the Beachcomber? I 
would like to thank the council 
for reminding me that the 
Beachcomber belongs to the 
students by virtue of a student 
activity payment. They also 
reminded me that the Beach- 
comber is given $6,500 to pub- 
lish the school paper. Perhaps 
the council overlooked my edito- 
rial appearing on page two of 
the Nov. 1 edition. The opening 
of that editorial, which carries 
my by-Une, reads, "The Beach- 
comber is your paper. We op- 
erate on your money. It stands 
to reason that our main purpose 
should be to please you — the 
students of Palm Beach Junior 

Wallowing in their cohori» 
rumors the ISCC was very 
concerned tliat I would pass 
over their "letter to the Edi- 
tor" and refuse to print it. 
They also felt that If I did 
print It I would carefully 
"edit" their work. Not only 
did I print the letter but left 
It entirely as we received 
it-grammatical errors and 

I am accused, by the council, 
of not knowing anything about 
what I vwlte. Surely the council 
will credit me with more Intelli- 
gence than that! I surely ex- 
pected repercussions after the 
last installment of the Cellar 
Door when I called an entire 
organization "Mickey Mouse." I 

Know more aoout them than social clubs cannot be looked up 

they know about themselves. to on this campus as they are 

I am sure that Dr. White, In so many other schools across 

Dean of gien, would be happy the country. The pity of the 

to talk to any concerned social situation is that the social clubs 

member about the manhours hfe have been too busy defending 

spends ironing out problems 
caused by social club members. 
It is my contention that it is 
the social members that have 
the toughest time being "so- 
cial." For a good example of 
social blunders committed by 
some members in soplal clubs 
I refer all readers to the front 
page of this issue. It is interep* 

It is interesting, while "we 
are on the subjpct, that even 
though the "midniglit inci- 
dent was highly rumored 
about the ISCC didn't oven 
take tlie t i m e to Investigate 
tlie situation, let alone take 
any action to possibly make 
an attempt to clear tlie mat- 
ter up to save their organiza- 
tion's "good name." It was 
my decision to run the front 
page story about the "mid- 
night Incident," mainly be- 
cause I felt that a few mem- 
bers were being awfully un- 
fair to the organization t h o y 
To tell you the truth, flie 
services that the social clubs 
have attempted and achieved 
carry no weight because I ex- 
pect social clubs to be just what 
they are designated to be-,sodal 
clubs. The student government 
does not demand service Irom 
social clubs and they pi'ovcd 
that at the first of this year 
when the Executive Council mot 
to discuss itlie budget for the 
'63-'64 school year. The council, 
by majority vote, decided on this 
basis of past achievein,ents to 
drop all social clubs from tlie 
financial picture. They were not 
allocated one red penny. 

If is very interesthig, Indeed, 
to note that six out of the eight 
voting members are social club 
members! Since, in their "letter 
t» the Editor" the ISCC made 
themselves out to be such fine 
servents to the school I wonder 
if they could explain why our 
student government lenders 
didn't thbik tliem wortliy of even 
one plug nickel 

Perhaps Bruce Amjnerman's 
statement that "he finds it very 
hard to get any cooperation out 
ol many of the social clubs" 
is representative of many stu- 
dent leaders and faculty opin- 
ions. Mimeran ought to know, 
he is Presfdent of the Student 
Government Association and is 
constantly in the middle of 
student activities 

Let's talk about rumors brief- 
ly. I have never been harmed 
by any social club member or 
members. I have never signed 
up for rush since I am affiliated 
with Alpha Tau Omega national 
fraternity (ATO). 

I wonder if many of the socifil 
club members have stopped 
fuming long enough to consider 
why I ridiculed them through 
the Beachcomber. I can't help 
thinking of a small child sitting 
in the middle of the floor 
throwing a tantrum while the 
grown ups sit around laughing 
at him. Social clubs are on trial 
whether they realize It or not. 
Unless definite changes are 
shown in pledging format and 
the overall social club attitudes, 
they are going to "clown" them- 
selves right off the campus. I 
see no reason whatsoever why 

themselves and blaming me for 
■pointing the finger at them." 
I would hate to see social clubs 
done away with. I will always 
be an advocate of social clubs 
If they are successful in their 

I was thumbing through the 
Galleon the other day and came 
across some very impressive 
pictures of our social clubs. It 
Is unfortunate that an organiza- 
tion with so much potential has 
such a questionable image on 
our campus. 

The Irony of the situation 
is timt social clubs are asking 
for a student judgement. It is 
my opinion, and it always will 
bo, tliat social clubs have 
already been tried and con- 
victed. It is up to tlie social 
clubs to appeal the decision 
by admitting their obvious 
faults and taking measm-os to 
correct them. Until tlioy do 
just that I honestly bellevo 
tliat social clubs on tlie PBJfJ 
campus will bo done awfiy 
with in a shorter time titan 
tiioy tliinlc. 

Ed, Note-This letter, upon the re- 
quest of tlie ISCC, has not been 
edited or cut. 

ISCC Strikes Back 

It is very dishearting to read 
in the Beachcomber that the 
Editor In Chief would like to 
deprive all students of social 
club stature from making con- 
tributions to their own school 
paper. We have been under the 
Impression that after paying an 
activity fee any student is eligi- 
ble to participate in any and 
all school functions. The Beach- 
comber has been alloted 6,500 
dollars of that activity to pub- 
lish the school paper. Through 
simple logic it seems to us that 
the social clubs have a perfect 
right to contribute campus news 
to the paper. The fact of the 
matter is we have been encour- 
aged to do just that by other 
members of the Beachcomber 

The article we make refer- 
ence to carries the By line of 
the Beachcombers Editor In 
Chief. It is from this By Une, 

lege Campus is that of the Thi 
Del Blood Drive. The Thi Del's 
have sponsored this project for 
a number of years. The various 
social organizations, along with 
many Independant students aid 
in the support of this ttoough 
their giving of blood. Does this 
make us blood brothers? During 
the holiday seasons of Tlianks- 
giving and Christmas the vari- 
ous social clubs give baskets of 
food to deserving families. TeU 
us sir is this ridiculous? This 
year the brothers of Alpha Phi 
are hard at work to complete 
their project of publishing the 
school dhrectory. The sisters of 
Tri Omega each year sponsor a 
dance to supply needy children 
with a little Christmas Cheer. 
This project doesn't seem a bit 
ridiculous to the sisters of Trl 
Omega or these needy children. 
These girls gave of their time 
to usher at the last play, "Dinny 
and the Witches". These girls 
also aided In the Students vs 
Tropics campaign. To go back 
a few years, we can thank the

Blood Drive 
By Thi Del 

By Joan Clark 

Thi Del is proud to announce 
that tlieir Blood Drive was 
extremely successful. The result 
of this drive topped all past 
drives. They collected 93 pints 
of blood. 

Formerly, the highest amount 
of blood given was 90 pints. The 
entire drive was given for the 
benefit which may be derived 
by the students and their famil- 

The blood Is available to any 
and all members of the college 
who might at some time be in 
need of it. 

The blood is being held by 
the Palm Beach Blood Bank 
announced Charmlne Kiiapp, 
leader of the drive. 

Thi Del would hke to th^nk 
aU the students who so gener- 
ously donated and remind th<im 
that this security reserve is 
available at any time. 

-roUed at Palm Beach Junior 
College it was left entirely up 
to our own discretion as to our 
affiliation with social clubs. 
Now as members of social clubs 
we strive to be an asset to our 
organizations and our school. 

In the November 1, 1963 edi- 
tion of the Beachcomber an 
article written by the Editor In 
Chief stated, and We Quote, 
"The way social clubs handle 
certain situations — it's ridic- 
ulous." The Editor then pro- 
ceede dto show everyone just 
exactly what he didn't know. It 
all seems to boil down to just 
one thing. The taking advantage 
of a position that deserves a 
little more dignity. The readers 
of this article are entitled to 
know the truth. It isn't the haHl 
of the social clubs to Blow Their 
Own Horns; but here are the 
facts. One of the more com- 
mendable contributions of the 
social clubs to the Junior Col- 

responsible for planting of much 
landscape around the school. 
Those while posts that are seen 
around the school campus were 
put there by Chi Sig pledges. 
Awarding two scholarships a 
year, Trl Kappa Lambda has 
kept financially disabled stu- 
dents In school. Each year the 
sisters of Philo give a club 
contribution to Annie the 
schools' orphan. You may also 
see the girls ol the social clubs 
out in the rain serving the food 
at Hootennany or a school pic- 
nic. The members of the social 
clubs are always available when 
help is needed by the office of 
student personal. It would be 
hard to count the man hours 
that the social clubs have put 
in on the SCHOOL MILLAGE, 
program. Would you as editor- 
in-chief label this as hoging the

Collect Names 

By Joan Clark 

Alpha Fl Is planning to pub- 
lish a school directory con- 
taining the names, addresses, 
and telephone numbers of jUI 
the day and night students at 
PBJC. This amounts to over 3, 
000 names. 

The directories wUl be on sale 
soon. The cost of the dkectory, 
$.50 cents, is going to defray 
the costs of the printing itself. 

The dh^ectories wiU be 
printed, tentatively, by thq? 
Palm BGach Post Times. 

The project began early last 
summer. The members of Alpha

This directory will aid students 
with then: communications to

A '63 graduate of Palm Beach 
High, brown-eyed Ruth Hagger- 
ty, newly - elected Freshman 
Veep, explained her reasons for 
candidacy as, "I wanted to 
work with the class that needs 
unification. It seems that every- 
one came out here with the Idea 
that it was a high school, not 
a college." 

At Palm Beach High, Ruth 
was active in the "Z" Club, 
Spanish Qub and FTA. In her 
sophomore year at Rosarian, 
she was the treasurer of her

SGA Prexy 
Urges Meeting 

The next meeting of the Stu- 
dent Congress will be held 
Thursday, November 21 in the 
AV room during the 10:00 
break. This congress is com- 
posed of a representative from 
each organization on campus 
and the executive council. SGA 
president, Bruce Ammerman, 
explained the purpose of Student 
Congress as, to "enact legisla- 
tion throughout the campus" 
and to keep "active so the 
student on campus has a better 

vole? in the government." 

"This part of Student Govern- 
ment has been sadly neglected 
throughout the past years. Just 
think of the potential energy, 
time and .ideas if aU the 42 
organizations could get togeth- 
er," Ammerman went on. 

Student Congress consists of 
a member of each of the 42 
organizations and the 12 mem- 
bers of the executive coimcU. 
If better attendance is not 
stressed for the Congress, there 
will be an election of delegates 
at large to get better represen- 
tation for the campus student.

With the planning of three 
acUvities, the Freshman Class 
officers, elected only weeks 
ago, have swung into action 
for the coming year. 

A beachparty, sponsored by 
the freshman class, is set for 
Dec 6 at Barton Park. Plans 
for a band and food are being 
arranged and will be announced 
next week. . 

A "State Fan-" is bemg 
planned for the first of next 
semester. Each social and 
service club would liave a 
booth and box lunches would 
be auctioned off. The days 
events will end with a dance. 
Middleton stated, "I want soc- 
ial and service clubs to voice 
their opinions on the upcom- 
ing State Fair." Proceeds 
from the fair will go ti the 
picnic area, another Frosh 
project. . 

Newly appomted chamnen ol 
Freshmen committees are: 
Activities, Ron Gornto; Consti- 
tution, Jerry Robinson; Traffic 
and Picnic Area, Bob Molman; 
and Advisory, Janet Zuccarelh. 
Middleton expresses the sm- 
cere desire that the Freshman 
Class will react to these pro- 
posed projects and show a uni- 
fied shrength. 


The new constitution was the 
main concern of the Florida 
JCSGA convention at Gulf Coast 
Junior College in Panama City, 

Friction between the Northern 
and Southern junior coUeges on 
the powers of the president 
made it necessary to hold off 
the adoption of the constitution 
until the spring convention. The 
constitution ends the conflict of 
Negro representation. One jun- 
ior coUege was not present at 
the convention because two of 
their representatives were Ne- 

Though these state conven- 
tions give an opportunity for all 
state junior coUeges to get 
together, Bruce Ammerman, 
PBJC student government presi- 
dent, feels that the district 
meetings accomplish more in 
reference to common prob- 

A State Beverage Department 
representative spoke to the pres- 
idents of the various SGAs 
about the crackdown on the stu-

the junior coUeges uidividuaUy. 
Ku-k Middleton, Pahii Beach 
Freshman Class president, and 
Freshman Qass officers from 
the other iunior coUeges have 
set up a communications system 
between the schools to help each 
other with problems and to 
exchange ideas.

Mediocrity Vs. Results 


As students, we have a responsibility to ourselves 
We must not allow ourselves to fall into a state ol 
mediocrity concerning our studies and we must 
continuously remind ourselves of the danger of igno- 
rance. Many are prone to forget a cause shortly after 
they become interested in it because they do not obtain 
immediate results. This is one of man's greatest 
stumbling blocks in his search for success. We must 
not attempt to accomplish astounding feats in a short 
time. Patience is an outstanding virtue. John Milton 
spent his entire life compiling information so that he 
could give us his "Paradise Lost" and ten years of 
his life were spent in the mere writing of the epic. 
Some may ask if this can be termed success. In the 
eyes of society no, this is not success, but through 
the vision of the creative man, it is accomplishment 
in the form of self satisfaction; a trait too often 
overlooked. When a man achieves something of value, 
he knows in his own soul that it is good and will bene- 
fit mankind. Worldly success is far from the realiza- 
tion of satisfaction in the soul. 

Many of us do not realize as we study for 
examinations that many of the facts we consider 
pointless are beneficial to us. We must assimilate every 
possible item of information presented to us in order 
to become properly informed citizens. We cannot all 
become leaders, but we can all become responsible. 
Let us make a self-examination now and improve 
ourselves so we may accumulate knowledge and apply 
it to a well defined future instead of taking the needless 
chance of failure. _ 

Every human being has approximately sixty-five 
years of life to look forward to. Man does not, at 
this time, have the power to scrutinize the future and 
view the forthcoming events that eventually will take 
place. Anyone who has even the most meager familiarity 
with history must be able to comprehend the fact 
that sixty-five years is merely a fleeting moment in 
comparison with the eons that have been spent in 
the development of our modern society. When the 
average person looks at our contemporary world, ho 
often decides that the end of learning must certainly 
have been reached, but if he will only delve a little 
more deeply into human nature, he will find there 
is no end in sight, much the same as it is impossible 
for us to comprehend the borders of the universe. 
Human beings are only the epitomy of animal life, 
and like animals, fight constantly between themselves 
for supreme recognition. In today's world, there is 
a cold war being waged between people of two dif- 
ferent nations. We have advanced technologically it 
seems, but our pui-pose is military. We are able to 
use atomic power for the pupose of producing electricity, 
but our demand requires more bombs. I am sure the 
peoples of the world do not basically desire these 
adversities, but through nationalistic feeling promoted 
by oratorical geniuses, they have grown to be suspicious 
of anyone bearing a nationality or creed different to 
their own. 

Much of this narrow mindedness may well be 
attributed to ignorance, not in the sense that people 
are stupid, but that they are not well enough informed. 
As long as we remain informed, there can be no fear 
of capitulation to communism or any other threat to 
.our freedom; without which we would have no choice 
between ignorance and education.

"See the girl. She is a pretty girl. See her checked,

See the boy. He is a college man. See his tapered

With no socks.

and wave paper cups in the air. It is hot and noisy. 
See them after the dance in the girl's parking lot. 
They are in his car with the loud muffler. They are 
on the front seat and, no, on second thought, don't 
see them in the parking lot. 

Now it is 12:30. See the girl run from the car. 
She must get inside hei' dorm on time. She is a big 

See them in class. The boy is slumped in the

She is asleep too. The professor is very dull. 

See them studying. It is 4:30 in the morning. They 
liave a test today. See the little pills. They keep them 
awake. See the bottles under the boy's bed. They put 
him to sleep. 

Now they are taking the test. See the little pieces 
of paper in their laps. Tiiey help them pass the test. 
It is liard.

Letters to the Editor 

Reader Tells of Anna 

Dear Editor: 

In the Oct. 21, 1963 edition of 
the Beachcomber, was a photo- 
graph and descriptive article of 
the adoptee of the Vet's Club. 

Just four years old, Anna 
Piscopo had very little chance 
to succeed in life. She is the 
product ol slum life in Naples, 
Italy. Her admittance to the 
Casa Materna Orphanage in 
Naples assures her a decent 
chance to survive the pain of 
growth in a community where 
hunger is an every day occur- 

To adequately describe Anna 
would be to describe 1,000 other 
four -year-old Italian girls in Na- 
ples. As unbelievable as it may 
sound, Naples has yet to recov- 
er from the Second World War. 
Families still live in bombed out 
homes — rubblesw ould be a bet- 
ter description. Over half of 
Naples' one mOlion people live 
in a two square-mile area. The 
area is infested with lice and 
is the sex, dope and black 
market headquarters of South 

This is the environment into 
which Anna Piscopo was born. 
Hei' father, a hard-working hon- 
est man, works when he can 
for a mere pittance. The daily 
average wage lor an Italian 
worker is about $1.60. Raising 
a family on $1.60 a day can 
be very difficult. When admitted 
into the orphanage Anna lacked 
proper nourishment and cloth- 

Students dig down a little 
deeper in your pockets and toss 
an extra coin into the wishing 
well for Anna. Every penny 
given to Anna by the students 
of PBJC will help make her life 
a litUe easier.

sures that contribute to the 
forming of school politics. These 
pressures in turn effect the 
college teachers and the student 

My title states that this coun- 
ty is flunking its politics. This 
failure should be quite obviius 
to anyone who has been keeping 
up with the events following 
Superintendent Howell Watkins 
resignation from office. From 
this immature and pitiful dis- 
play of politics which has fol- 
lowed only one rational state- 
ment has emerged and this is 
school board Vice-Chairman 
Milton Carpenter's plea for a 
non-partisan school board and 
superintendent. This plea should 
be seriously considered. 

"I'm convinced party politics 
have no place in the operation 
of our schools," said Vice- 
Chairman Carpenter in the only 
rational statement to arise out 
of last weeks slashes of charges 
and counter-charges. 

I believe he is right. I think 
a politically controlled school 
board can be quite disastrous. 
The muddy mess over Superin- 
tendent VS'atkins resignation 
merely confirms this. Other 
states have made school board 
membership and the office of 
superintendent non-political and 
have shown this to be a benefi- 
cial formula to foUow. 

Maybe with non-political offi- 
cials in office we could discuss 
certain national and internation- 
al controversial issues in our 
classrooms (this depends on 
whether or not you feel debate 
should be a part of education) 
which at present are unofficially 
hushed up because of local 
outside political pressure on our 
school board and on the superin-

County Flunks Politics 

Dear Editor: 

I feel the students in this 
county should be better in- 
formed as to the political pres- 

through out Palm Beach County 
and other surrounding counties 
have been conducting a drive 
for George Cochran. 

George Cochran graduated 
fi'om a northern high school in 
1962. He moved to Florida, with 
his parents, in the winter of last 
year. Last July 9, 1963 George 
was at a swimming area and 
dove into a shallow area sus- 
taining a very bad injury. He 
broke his neck and is now 
paralyzed from his shoulders 
down. Doctors have no idea if 
George will ever get his move- 
ment back. The old proverb 
once stated, "Where there is life 
there is hope". This proverb is 
very much alive in George as 
he lies in a hospital in Miami 
hoping and praying. 

I ask you, through the Beach- 
comber, if some form of money 
raising project can be carried 
on by the students, as a whole, 
to raise money to help George. 
He is in great need of money

Already the George Cochran 
Committee has had a dance to 
raise money for George. It is 
now planned by the committee 
to have a hootenany at the 
Palm Beach High School on 
November 30, 1963. Tlie event is 
a two-part event. There is a 
matinee in the afternoon at 2:30 
for the donation of 75 cemts 
and an evening show at 7:30 
for the donation of 90 cents. 

I ask you, editor, and the 
students if these events alone, 
will get all the money needed 
to help George recover? The 
answer is obviously no. 

So, in conclusion, if anything 
can be done by Palm Eeach 
Junior College students to help 
George in just a little way. 
I might add that any one inter- 
ested in attending any event, 
put on for the George Cochran 
Fund, is invited to attend.

Dear Editor, 

It has come to my attention 
that the teen-agers and adults 

Ex-Social Club Member 

Dear Mr. Editor, 

I am writing on the social club 
issue. Before I state my views, 
though, let me first clarify my 
motives. I am not one of those 
"Professional War - Mongers," 
looking for a cause at which to 
aim the fury of my wrath. I am 
not writing this to prolong the 
"Battle Royale," but I am writ- 
ing to defend our Beach coinber 
Editor, who was attacked both 
physically and verbally in the 
exercise of his rights and duties 
as editor of a FREE college 

I have only one thing to say 
of the physical attack, or at- 
tempted attack on Ron Johnson 
— you certainly showed your 
maturity and intelligence, 

As far as the verbal attack 
goes (I'm referring to the ISCC 
rebuttal in the "Letters to the 
Editor" column) I think the 
most aU-emcompassing state- 
ment that can be made about 
it is that it was an attempt to 
justify the existence and "right- 
ness" of actions of the PBJC 
social clubs, but, rather than by 
logical means — since there can 
be no rational ways of justifying 
pledges walking like ducks in 
the lounge or yelling off-color 
cheers back and forth at each 
other during the ten o'clock 
break, or, starting regular 
"gang- wars" because a Chi Sig 
pledge stole a Phi Da Di's 
beanie or myriads of other 
"typical" daily activities, — the 
letter had to resort to other 
devices which all logic students 
and second semester Freshman 
English students will immedi- 
ately recognize as the fallacies 
of logic. The letter convenienUy 

Letter Con't 

ignored those things (some of 
which are mentioned above) 
which it found difficult to ex- 
plain, and it placed emphasis on 
things which really hardly enter 
into the full picture at all. And 
the quality of the arguments, on 
issues the ISCC deemed worthy 
of discussion, was not good. For 
one example, we all can see the 
benefits of giving Christmas and 
Easter baskets to needy chil- 
dren, but this was expounded on 
— as though the goodness of this 
act had been challenged. We are 
glad to see the benevolent social 
clubbers engaged in such worth- 
while projects. However, the let- 
ter didn't mention how hard it is 
to get these "benevolent, self- 
sacrificing" members to bring in 
those cans or donate that fifty 
cents which makes up the bask- 
et. Also, praise was given to the 
Thi Del Blood Drive. What do 
the girls do, reaUy? Boys are 
drafted to unload the equipment, 
and the nurses handle opera- 
tions. AU the girls do is make 
posters (for which pledges earn 
points and, therefore, gain ma- 
terially — not "sociologically 
and spiritually", hand out cook- 
ies and orange juice, or solicit 
patients, which gives the girls 
a chance to meek formerly 'un- 
met" guys that look like good 
catches. If you doubt this just 
watch next time and see whether 
interest seems to be in blood 
or "batty-eyelids." 

I don't mean to knock this 
club In particular. This common 
trait can he found in almost all 
the girls busy in the perform- 
ance of their "constructive" 
tasks (like collecting pennies for 
Daisy Mae — ultimately for 
"Dollars for Scholars"). I do 
not condemn them for this, 
either, but I mention it as proof 
of my contention that it is not 
solely out of generous motives 
that those constructive things 
which get done are performed. 
There are many other social 
club "services" also, which are 
motivated by at least partiaUy 
selfish intentions, but there is 
no need to dwell on all of them 
since, as Mr. Johnson said, 
social clubs are not primarily 
service clubs. 

The letter of the ISCC tried 
to make it appear that our 
Beachcomber Editor was ONE 
fanadc man with weird ideas 
who shouldn't be allowed to use 
the newspaper to falsely and 
erroneously persecute social 
clubs. And it attacked him 
personally by calling him igno- 
rant of PBJC social clubs and, 
therefore unqualified to speak 
on the subject. Readers — those 
of you who aren't social club 
members but who have seen the 
goings-on in the lounge or other 
places, and those of you who 
have known social club mem- 
bers—do you consider yourselves 
ignorant or unable to recognize 
immature actions and people. 
Don't you think your opinions 
are pretty valid? 

WeU, I think mine are — 
especially since I WAS a mem- 
ber of one of the famous social 
clubs !

Most of the social club mem- 
bers are basicEiUy very nice 
people — the fault lies not so 
much in them as in the nature 
of the organization, itself. They 
are caught in a trap. They are 
restricted and confined without 
knowing it. Their opinions are 
shaped and molded according to 
the group, and they find them- 
selves eventually becoming an 
indoctrinated stereotype. 

I knew nothing of these social 
clubs before I pledged, but after 
I became a member I began 
to see many creeping evils. 
From the outside you can see 
a cave, and it may look dark 
and forbidding, but only from the 
inside can you see the snakes 
and insects and dirt therein. 
The flowery ideals are 
preached: "Brother loves broth- 
er ; sister loves sister— from now 
tU always," etc., etc. However 
— like communism — it sounds 
great in theory but fails to be 
true in practice. 

I cannot condone an organiza- 
tion in which the members get 
their thrills from totally and 
completely degrading and domi- 
nating the pledges to buOd up 
themselves — and I'll violently 
(but logically) argue with any- 
one who says this Isn't the real 

Perhaps, if Mr. Johnson's ar- 
guments were not sufficiently 
qualified (since he has never 
belonged to a PBJC social 
club), mme wiU be. And per- 
haps now he doesn't seem like 
such a lone voice. Many other 
people have these same views, 
too. You people, have courage 
to state your beliefs, and not 
to let them succeed in making 
it appear that one man up 
against a machine is

As college students we are

a beautihil woman's face struck 
with the indescribable lines ol

Casey Wheeler and Elaine Hipkins were elected Lil' Abner and Sadie 
Hawkins, respectively. 

Let the good times roll at the Sadie Hawkins dance. 

Sadie Hawkins Dance 

Elaine Hopkins and Casey 
Wheeler were selected as Dai- 
sy Mae and L'il Abner for 
1963 at the annual Sadie Haw- 
kins Dance. 

Mary Abate, coordinator for 
the dance, reported that 56S3 
was collected for the Dollars for 
Scholars fund through votes f^r 
Daisy Mae and L'il Abner by 
the student body. Tri Omega 
and Chi Sig were the biggest 
contributors, with $224 and $73 

Entertainment was provided 
by Pat West and Sherry Sander- 
son, local folksingers, the Philo 
Pledges, "Doing what comes 
naturally," and the Tiii Del 
pledges explaining the origin of 
Sadie Hawkins Day. Tri Omega 
was in charge of the decora- 

Music was provided by the 
Impalas and Marrying Sam 
performed nuptial ceremonies 
for the special fee of 25 cents. 

Hoot Travels After Sadie 




As they say, "Funny thing 
happened on the way to the 
Forum." Well the same type of 
thing happened after the Sadie 
Hawkins' Dance. 

It goes this way — All of the 
Yokums got so excited during 
the dance that they had to finish 
off the evening in perfect Jubi- 
lee T. Compone style. 

As they all left the barn- 
style auditorium, rollicking 
was still in their veins. The 
next stop on their traveling-. 
Hootenanny (Dogpatch style) 
-was the favorite stopover of 
the college set— Wolfie's Res- 

As the Dogpatch swingers 
approached the door, they were 
told there would be an hour wait 
— so, intead of waiting they sat 
ripht down in front of the door 
and had a regular Hoe-down. To 
the music of various folk sing- 
ers, the group then caravaned 
to the parking lot across the 

The group was just getting 
started. They were in the mood 
for excitement, so they took off 
again. This time they all landed 
at the Sportsman's Inn on Mili- 
tary Trail. 

The management in this old- 
fa-shioned log cabin was very 
kind after several of the reg- 
ular customers begged the 
Yokunis to stay and play their 
git- tars. 

The Lil Abners and Daisy 
Maes all volunteered to this 
task with no regrets, by getting 
the Inn to join in their hillbilly 
Hootenanny. They sang various 
folksongs — that by the sounds 
— probably came from old 
Dogpatch U.S.A. itself. 

But as all good tilings, this 
little caravan also had its end- 
ing. All the Dogpatchers had 
to show up at church the next 
day stace Marryin' Sam would 
be sure to know if they skunk- 
ed out on their rightful obli-

Howell Wat kins; 
The JC 'Father' 

Howell L. Watkins has an- 
nounced his retirement. The 
"Father of Palm Beach Junior 
College" and, in fact, the entire 
junior college system in the 
state announced recently that he 
wUl step down from his post 
as Superintendent of Public 
Schools for Palm Beach County 
to be effective Jan. 1, 1965. 

PBJC pays tribute to tliis 
esteemed educational pioneer 
in hopes that he will feel our 
appreciation and gratitude. 
Back in 1933 Watlcins dreamed 
up a make-shift college for 
Palm Beach High School gradu- 
ates who couldn't afford to go 
to college. The newly arrived 
principal, worldng closely with 
the then superintendant of Palm 
Beach County schools — Joseph 
A. Youngblood got together six 
wUling teachers to teach 65 
graduates of Palm Beach High 
after regular school hours and 
on Saturday. 

Perhaps Watkins did not 
realize at that time that he 
was setting the framework for 
an educational venture that 
would years later involve over 
38,000 students and 28 two 
year institutions of higher 
learning throughout Florida. 
It was a tedious battle up the 
ladder for Watkins to prove that 
the "make shift" school was 
qualified. It was a known fact 

in 1936, when the first class 
graduated from Palm Beach 
Junior College, that the gradu- 
ates literally had to talk their 
way into four year colleges. 
Watkins continued to strive for 
status. He studied the curricu- 
lum, he sought ways to finance 
the school. In 1940, along with 
John I. Leonard, the new county 
superintendent of schools and 
the president of the junior col- 
lege, Watkins felt thai PBJC 
was ready for Iho test. The 
Southern Association of Collegos 
and Secondary Schools paid a 
visit to the campus. It was Iho 
SACSS stamp of approval that 
Watkins sought. The stamp 
would be a stepping stone into 
greater horizons. The visiting 
SACSS committee, however, 
turned thumbs down on th(»ir 

Watkins, and his educational 
cohorts weren't to be denied. 
They returned to the drawing 
boards and in 1942 PIWC 
became a full fledged accred- 
ited .junior coUejje. 
Twenty-one years later many 
things have happened to PBJC, 
to the educational .system of 
Florida, and to Howell L. Wat- 

Watkins became Superintend- 
ent of Palm Beach County 
schools and has served in that 
capacity for the last 15 years. 


The latest in fashion is the" 
sporty look — suntanned pigskin 
gloves with a stuff able cowhide 
bag. Leggy-look stockings in a 
variety of pastel colors are the 
latest style. Hand-stitched moc- 
casin shoes in waxy leather as 
well as graceful silhouette shoes 
suede or kidskin, with a low 
slim heel will be a round-up of 
casual accents on accessories. 

Smo-o-oth is the scarf look. 

the Bikini triangle, a pert suc- 
cess on heads. It's smart! It's 
soft! It's waterproof! Great for 
outdoor coverage when your 
hair needs help. 

The new natural look in make- 
but never show. Light shades 
of lipsticks and less attention 
put on eye makeup. Result? You 
look twice as pretty, but you 
never look artificial.

Campus Combings 

College Day Proves 
Beneficial To Students 

.Asso<:iate Editor 

A "Consolidated College Day" 
sponsored by the Palm Beach 
County Guidance Association 
was held at PBJC recently for 
the benefit of all public and 
private high schools In the coun- 

Over 500 high school stu- 
dents participated in the pro- 
gram in which 38 colleges and 
nniversiiies were repre- 

The program was an attempt 
to help admissions officers of 
various colleges accomphsh in 
one day what used to take one 
and one-half weeks, by getting 
the juniors and seniors assem- 
bled at JC on one day for a 
combined program. 

In the morning, the deans, 
counselors, and principals of 
this area met with the repre- 
sentatives to discuss admission 

The group lunched together 
with Senator Bud Dickinson, 
who was guest speaker. 

Students arrived on campus 
in the afternoon and the 
groups were divided into three 
sessions. A fourth session was 
added for individual confer- 
ences with the admissions of- 

Said Dean Glynn, "The pro- 
gram is being evaluated by both 
the representatives, counselors 
and the principals of local high 
schools. Results of their evalua- 
tions will determine whether a 
combined college day is pre- 
sented next year." 

Reporter Wages 
War Against 
Library Noise 


It takes supreme surrender to 
let your friend pass by without 
giving some acknowledgement 
of his or her presence. It takes 
supreme power to be still and 
retract from speaking to your 
neighbor whether it be of impor- 
tance or not. 

I can accept the idea that 
so-called self-expression is one 
of the most powerful urges the 
human being possesses. Also the 
idea that excess repels, being 
true when there is too much 
silence. Merely because it stores 
up within a person to the point 
that it creates energy in a man. 
The word must be spoken before 
it becomes creative. 

The above paragraph for- 
gives speaking and points to 
why we must have it. On the 
other hand sUence is needed 
and greatly desired depending 
upon circumstances. For in- 
stance, the noise in the library 
at PBJC. Here, silence is 
needea and greatly desired. 
We all have, I am sure, a 
natural respect for the man or 
women who talks little; an 
instinctive disU'uct of the con- 
stant babbler. Closed mouths 
arc often highly esteemed even 
when they show few evidences 
of other great aualities. Person- 

ally, I feel confidence in the one 
who' knows when to speak and 
an uneasiness about the one who 
chatters like a magpie. 

Our library or "lounge num- 
ber two" is filled to the choking 
point with these magpies-people 
that love to speak and disturb 
others As I mentioned before 
this is a part of life but I niust 
say that this does not include 
the library. 

The library is a place to 
express silence and respect 
tor others. Forget the "hel- 
lo's" and "good-bye's" during 
the time that you sit in the 
library. If humility can be 
expressed for others by the 
use of silence then I am sure 
vou will gain the ability to ap- 
preciate the meaning of tran- 
quUity in its right place. 
Do identification cards have 
to be taken from individuals as 
a means to accomplish the 
ends? Or would it be better 
to have our campus patrolman 
walk through the aisles? 

I don't think that the students 
of our college realize how rnuch 
power and influence they own. 
And all of this Is common 
knowledge already known to 
the reader. Also what has 
been said is knowi to be 
right. People need to be re- 
minded over and over Th^,

Forfeits a Problem 



Forfeit is one word which should be "taboo" 
all sports participants in the intramural program. 

■The team should realize the importance of not 
forfeiting a match. There are three different corrective 
measures which can be taken; The students should 
not sign up for the activity if they do not plan to 
be there. Do not conflict one event with another If 
there are conflicting interests, try to change the time 

pro?r\m' AfLTa'time the athletic faculty must notice 
^ Th^foVfdt could be detrimental to the intramural 
program Aftera t ime the athletic faculty must notice 
?he ™mber of forfeits. It must be a very discouraging 
sight for the athletic faculty to see the ™niber ol 
forfeits. After all the faculty gives up much of their 
free time helping with the ^tramural program 

This situation has not yet reached the diastc stages^ 
The athletic faculty should take the mo^t drastic action 
in this situation. The appropriate action would be to 
be very hard on the person or persons involved m 

'^' As'one'student who enjoys the -tramuml program 
I would like to see the unnecessary done away witti 

by everyone concerned. . ^, qc cnped on 

The forfeit of an event is as same as speed on 

the highway. It is a killer. 

Staff Names 
All-Star Team 

The Beachcomber Sports Staff 
is proud to announce a Flag Tag 
Tourney Team. The teams arc 
the best offensive and defensive 
players of the tourney. 

The offensive team is as fol 
lows: right end Ron Full- 
wood of Chi Sig, guard Pvandy 
Bedford of the Fugitives, center 
Errol Higgs of the Misfits, left 
end Dave Lee of the Misfits, 
quarterback F^on Molinarl of 
Circle K, Harr\ Jorensen of the 
Fugitives and Pee Wee Wise of 
the Fugitives, are the half- 

The defensive team of the 
tourney is as follows: Budd.v 
Payne of the Marauders and 
Howard Ennis of the Misfits the 
defensive ends, Keith Van Meter 
of Chi Sig middle guard, defen- 
sive safeties Dave Holmes of 
the Misfits and Fred Mayer of 
Chi Sig, defensive backs of the 
x's and Jack Tarrant of the Fu- 

Fugitives Gain Title 

The Fugitives gained the Flag 
Tag Title with a 6-0 victory over 
Chi Sig. 

The first half produced a 
defensive battle between the two 
teams with the Fugitives pick- 
ing off three Jay Groover aeri- 
als. The only touchdown came 
as a result of a Jack Tarrant 
to Horace (Pee Weet Wise. Wise 
got behind the defender and 
with his speed outraced the 
secondary for the score. 

The second half of the game 
produced a ver>' great defensive 
battle between these teams. The 
defensive secondary saved the 
game for the Fugitives by 
knocking down the last two Jay 
Groover aerials intended for 
Ron Fullwood. 

The game was the hardest 
hitting of any of the Flag Tag 
Games. The game was heavj- 
in penalties as both teams were 
playing very aggressive brands 
of football.

A sub-committee of the safety 
committee, formed for the pur- 
pose of hearing these appeals, 
meets every two weeks. It is 
composed of Mr. Roy E. BeU, 
Mr. Otis Harvey and Mr. 
George W. Plofmann. 
Of course your story had" 

better be good. The committee 
has heard such dillies as "I just 
forgot my decal," and "My 
mom doesn't like it on so I take 
it off when she drives and 
neglected to put it back on." 

And then there was the boy 
who was flunking his early 
classes because he rodo to 
school with his brother who was 
constantly late. 

He solved his problem by 
purchasing a bumper block, 
painted his name on it and 
placed It in "teacher row." 
Eventually he was discovered 
but everyone agreed it was a 
good try. 

It has been observed lately 
that the appeals are getting 
fewer. Dean Wayne White bo- 
llovos this is because of the fair 
work of both the policemen and 
the committee. But it could also 
be due to the fact that good 
excuses are hard to come by 
now days.

'Comber Editorial Leading The Way On Campus 

The Journaiisfs Creed 

The Beachcomber follows the journalistic creed 
written by Walter Williams Dean of Journalism at 
the University ot Missouri from 1908 io 1935. Williams 
policy is the Beachcomber's policy. The Williams creed 

is printed below. . . 
* RJ Ed. 

I Believe In The Profession of Journalism 

I believe that the public journal is a public trust; 
That all connected with it are, to the full measure 
of their responsibility, trustees for the public; That 
acceptance of a lesser service than the public service 
is betrayal of this trust. 

I believe that clear thinlcing and clear statement, 
accuracy, and fairness, are fundamental to good 

I believe that a journalist should write only what 
he holds in his heart to be true. 

I believe that suppression of the news, for any 
consideration other than the welfare of society, is inde- 

I believe that no one should write as a journalist 
what he would not say as a gentleman; that bribery 
by one's own pocketbook is as much to be avoided 
as bribery by the pocketbook of another; that individual 
-responsibility may not be escaped by pleading another's 
instructions or another's dividends. 

I believe that advertising, news and editorial 

columns should alike serve the best interests of readers; 

"hat a single standard of helpful truth and cleanness 

hould prevail for all; that the supreme test of good 

ournalism is the measure of its public service. 

I believe that the journalism which succeeds best 
— and best deserves success — fears God and honors 
man; is stoutly independent, unmoved by pride of 
opinion or greed of power, constructive, tolerant but 
never careless, self-controlled, patient, always respect- 
ful of its i-eaders but always unafraid, is quickly 
indignant at injustice; is unswayed by the appeal of 
privilege or the clamor or the mob, seeks to give 
every man a chance, and as far as law and honest 
vage and recognition of human brotherhood can make 
t so, and equal chance; is profoundly patriotic while 
.'inceroly promoting international good will and ce- 
menting world-comrade-ship; is a journalism of humani- 
ty, of and for today's world. 


Bullets And Knowledge 


The recent tragic death of President Kennedy must 
serve as a stimulus to every American, especially the 
young, to increase their political knowledge and strive 
for a better America, free from maniacal individuals 
who would commit such debaucherous acts. The man 
who directed the bullet that crashed into John Kennedy's 
skull and forever halted the hands of time for him 
was the product of unfortunate political misinformation. 
Had this man a knowledge of American politics and 
ideals, he probably would never have committed the 
dastardly crime that he did. As young Americans, 
we have the golden opportunity to improve ourselves 
politically and morally and do our part to prevent 
the repetition of an outrageous act of inhumanity such 
as this. 

I can only feel, as others do, the nostalgic memory 
of one who lived not only as a man, but also as 
a figure, a figtire of America, who strived as his 
presidential predecessors did, to maintain our freedom 
and who came to an abrupt end as a man and as 
a President would come to such an inglorious end; 
with dignity and perfection of soul. , Let us not forget 
him in the annals of history. We will continue as he 
would have wished us to do in his forced absence. 
We will promote, as Americans have always done, 
the image and capability of our new president. We 
will not, in this hour of depression, lend support to 
the undermining forces that seek to destroy us by 
our succumbing to a feeling of inferiority of stature 
as a united nation. We will show to the world our 
resolution as a people of understanding of human nature, 
that this world is not in complete alliance with itself 
as yet, but with diligent effort on our part, will some 
day be. 

'No Comments' 


The Journalists Creed is printed on this page as 
a statement of Beachcomber policy. One of the most 
interesting segements of the Creed deals with suppres- 
sion of the news. Walter Williams states in his 
journalistic column "I believe that suppression of the 
news, for any consideration other than the welfare 
of society is indefensible." 

Suppression of the news is a faction of journalism 
that newspapers constantly fight. At I->alm Beach Junior 
College, the editorial staff of the 'Comber is given 
almost complete freedom of press. I call it "freedom 
with mature responsibility." The Beachcomber will 
never suppress news unless the welfare of the campus 
and the reputation of tiie school would be harmed. 

Since t have become Editor of the Beachcomber 
a few individuals have taken issue with me for 
publicizing disciplinary actions and student offenses. 
Keeping within the Journalistic Ci-eed I strongly believe 
that the pubH.shing of specific offenders contributes 
two servies to the campus. Number one — It eliminates 
blame of the innoc'cnt. Number two — Helps to prevent 
similai', future offenses. 

Of course, there are certain disciplinary actions that 

ai'o taken on this campus, as on all campus's, that 

cannot and should not bo publicized. I have .seen some 

campus newspapers, however, that I feel have crossed 

over Ihe fine line between campus service and pure 

malicous sensationalism to attract reader interest. At 

one west coast university daily campus paper a regular 

police blotter is featured. If a student was to be picked 

up by police for drinking etc. the .student can be certain 

that his or her name will be in the paper the next. 

day, to be exposed to the entire campus. I feel that 

this is wrong and unprofessional in a campus-newspaper 


Recently, the Chi Sig's were banned from participa- 
ting in intramurals for reasons explained Csee story 
page 7). In this case I felt that the students on this 
campus were entitled to know the facts. We pay, through 
an activity fee, for the intramural program. Students 
are paid to officiate intramural games. The intramural 
program, in essence, belongs to the students and when 
a team is barred from participation we have a right 
to know why. The Beachcomber has always supported 
the intramural program. The 'Comber has tried to 
maintain a fair policy when dealing with the faculty 
and administration.

Thank You, JFK 

By Watson B. Dunca«,IIl 
Communications Department Head 

Thank you, John F. Kennedy, for keeping the light 
of fi-eedoin burning bright in the world. 

Thank you for your courage and vision which kept 
the purpose and pride and conscience of America before 
the entire world. 

Thank you for demonstrating that patriotism is 
a course of action rather than a mere sentiment which 
comes trippingly off the tongue. 

Thank you for your imagination, vitality and 
creativity which have served to make intellectual 
pursuits desirable, the best education enviable, and 
the arts paramount. 

Thank you for your smile and laughter, brilliant 
wit and sense of humor which many times cleared 
away tensions and hurts and gave us a sense of balance 
and proportion. 

Thank you for your strong sense of history which 
penetrated the darkness of many problems that 
threatened us and illuminated the path ot solution. 

Thank you for shortening the discrepancy between 
the American performance and the American possibili- 

Thank you for being the one authentic trumpet 

of democracy which sounded loud and clear over the 
raucous voices of hate, bigotry, intolerance, injustice, 
and extremism. 

The eternal flame at your grave in Arlington will 
be a clear beacon of national purpose that will burn 
brightly for generations to come. 

Thank you, God, for the soul of John Fitzgerald 
Kennedy, which nurtures that flame.

In Tragedy

sobering and all-embracing

mon of all burdens. Need- 
less to say, for John F. 
Kennedy, eulogies are gush- 
ing forth from the heads, 
hearts and pens of people 
at all stations of life; hind- 
sight and lamentation, how- 
ever, must only punctuate 
history, must only be a 
brief pause and source of 
conviction from which to 
draw new meaning and di- 
rection in a not too certain 
human destiny. In this

The Cellar Door 

Flops Make Good? 

By Ron Johnson 

In the last oditiori of the 
'Camber' 1 dioppt'd the social 
flub issue. The so-called "battle 
royal" was over as far as I 
was concjerned. I personally felt 
la.<5t week that rny column 
entitled "The Three King Cir- 
cus" and "1 Place a Flower" 
were undoubtedly the editorial 
flops of the year. 

I tried in vain, through hun- 
dreds of words, to inxpress upon 
tlie social ('luhs that I was a 
strong advocate of the. so<'lal 
cliih organization but that, 
IhruiiKh unwarranted and un- 
acceptable, pra<'ti«'e, their or- 
ganiziitions were walliing on 
thill ice. It was amazing to me 
how the <^lubs could overlook the 
fact that I was actuall.y trying 
to stimulate them into an 
overall chaiigo in format. 
I have often cited the example 
of the little boy that was told 
never to cross the railroad 
ti-acks, The little boy crossed 
the railroad tracks and his 
mother tried tn explain to him 
that it was dangerous and 
wrong. I'he boy, however, 
crossed the tracks again. This 
time, his mother slapped his 
wrists and it hurt. The boy 
didn't cross the tracks again. 
This is certainly not to say that 
the clubs are like litUe boys and 
that 1 am their leader. It simply 

means that a sharp word placed 
where it hurts does wonders. 

The sharp words hurt at first. 
They still were taking their toll 
last week. Instead of taking my 
opinions as constructive criti- 
cism, the clubs reverted to 
nasty letters and dirty Iwiks. 
But, ala.s! This week, things are 
different. Almost the unbelieva- 
ble is lieeoming a reality. The 
social clubs have planned an 
'extravaganza' for the whole 
campus benefit. Would I tie con- 
ceited in saying that my opin- 
ions are the cause of this extra 
effort? By route of rumor only, 
I heard that one club official 
said "If it wasn't for that — 
Johnson we wouldn't have to 
prove anything." But the fact 
of the matter is the club's are 
attempting to prove to this 
campus that they are capable 
of bigger and better things. I ^ 
know there is a concentrated ] 
sincere effort being made to | 
improve an image that has 
remained questionable for so 
long a period. 

I'm behind the s()eial clubs all 
the way on their current proj- 
e<'t. As far as I'm concerned, 
the social club's tentative show- 
is front page- material. 

I'll be there. So will many

FAU Staff At PBJC 
For Interviews With 
Prospective Students 


Associate Editor 

Six Florida Atlantic staff 
members were at PBJC yester- 
day to conduct follow-up inter- 
views with all students who 
indicated an interest in FAU in 
a recent postal card survey. 

The staff was also available 
to all other students who wished 
to know more about FAU and 
its learning programs. 

For nine and one-half hours 
yesterday students poured into 
various guidance offices for 
brief 15-minute chats with the 
staff members. Interviews were 
bv appointment only. 

FAU members participating 
in the program were Mr. Jack 
C. Guistwhite, representing the 
Registrar's Office; Mr. Leland 
H. Jackson, representing Ad- 
missions and Institue of Busi- 
ness Administration; Mr. Rob- 
ert K. Woser, representing Reg- 
istration and Records; Dr. Sam- 
uel A. Pomoy, representing the 
Divisions of Social Sciences and 
Humanities; Dr. Martin W. 
Schoppmeyer, representing the 
i Institute of Education; and Dr. 
i Carlos M. Vilar-Alverez, repre- 
senting the Division of Science. 

I was going to WTJte on . 
Christmas, but as you all are ' 
very well aware, there only n 
more shopping days until thr 
expected day. Ever\-one knows 
it's a holiday promoted hv Mad 
ison Ave. so the Johnsons can 
outdo the Joneses. The whoU' 
holiday is so commerriali?*^ 
and systematized that even San 
ta Claus has a zip code number 

It's outrageous, inappropriate 
B.nd unpatriotic. And think what 
cutting all those trees, which 
people decorate with thos* 
ghastly electric bull>s, does to 
our national conservation pro- 
gram. It's downright scurriloos. 

But I must get to the subject 
of this tirade because my article 
has to be sandwiched in be- 
tween BiUy Graham's advice to 
the lovelorn and the Httmane 
Society's obituaries, and the 
other articles being so much 
more pertinent and soul satisfy-

was very solemn. | 

"People fell to their knees

Knights Lick Sig's 

The Knights, soccer king pins 
for the last two years won their 
third straight intramural soccer 
championship with a decisive 5- 
1 victory over Chi Sig. 

The Knights controlled the 1st 
half as they scored 2 goals. The 
first goal was scored by Randy 
Medford after ten minutes had 
passed. Dave Tatum scored the 
second with only 3 minutes left 
to go in the first half. 

■The second half was no differ- 
ent as Dave Tatum scored his 
second goal with 2 minutes 
gone. The Knights added two 
more goals as Sev Loeffler and 
Jesus Vaslequez scored. Chi Sig 
got on the scoreboard in the 
waning minutes of play. 

Sport scope 

By Don Gilchrest 

The largest pi-oblem of the intramural program 
this year has been the unsportsmanlike conduct of 
some of the participants. 

This editor knows from personal experience, that 
a person can tend to be over emotional. The emotions 
and tempers of a person do not belong in any sports 

A person who shows his emotion in this way is 
a detrement to himself. A person like this is also 
detrement to the team. The conduct of an individual 
could cause his team's disqualification from further 

The purpose of the intramural program is for 
organizations and individuals to enjoy sports competi- 
tion. It deems only reasonable not to argue with the 
officials. Also, obnoxious comments are out of place 
on the playing field. With any such action the person 
loses two virtues which are valuable to himself. They 
are the respect and dignity of others. The athletic 
staff, friends and spectators lose all respect they have 
for the person. A player must maintain his dignity 
at all times. 

If the teams that have shown some poor sportsman- 
ship would follow the example of TKL and Circle K, 
this would be a much bettojr program. 

This editor would like to single out a few individuals 
who have conducted themselves in a show of good 
sportsmanship. Hats off to: Fred Mayer of Chi Sig, 
Sandy Bruce of Chi Sig, Doug DeVous of Chi Sig, 
Errol Higgs of the Misfits, and Al Franklin of Circle 
K. If all other participants in the intramural program 
would follow these examples good sportsmanship would 
produce keen, clean competition in all sports. 

The banning of Chi Sig proves my fact even more 
that a few bad tempers cause hardship for the entire 

Wake DP and show initiative and better sportsman-

'No Comments' 

(Continued from Page 2 ) 

It has come to their defense, 
publicized their accomplish- 
ments. We shall continue this 
policy and we wiU always be 
guided by the Journalistic Ci'eed 
even though the PE department 
gave this writer a big fat "no 
comment" when asked to clari- 
fy their decision in banning the 
Chi Siff's from intra murals. 

When I first heard of the Chi 
Sig banning I went to Mrs. 
Elisabeth Erling, Chairman of 
the Home Economics, Health, 
and Physical Education Depart- 
ment, for a statement of clarifi- 
cation. I had three questions in 
my notebook to ask Mrs. Erl; 
ing: 1. Why were the Chi Sig's 
banned from intra murals? 2. 
Why, possibly, was the entire 
club banned because of the 
actions of only a few members? 

3. Why was the entire club 
banned but the members were 
being allowed to sign up with 
other teams and continue partic- 
ipation? Mrs. Erling gave no 
comment concerning the ban- 

"No comments" never made 
a newspaper news, never clari- 
fied decisions nor explained a 
situation. "No Comments" are 
slaps in tlie face to the Journal- 
istic Creed.

Million Dollar Package 
On PBJC Doorstep 


A 21/2 million dollar Ciiristmas 
pacloge was delivered to the 
door of PBJC recently but we 
wtU have to wait awhile to see 
what's inside. 

Palm Beach JC received $2, 
400,000 when the recent Bond 
Issue was passed by the citi- 
zens of Florida. According to 
Dr. Harold C. Manor, President 
of PBJC, a survey team from 
several consultant enterprises, 
will visit the campus "sometime 
in January to examine possible 
ways and means to put the 
money to its best use." 

"Presently we have many 
lentative plans," Dr. Manor 
evplained in a recent interview. 
"We won't know anything defi- 
nite until all consultant reports 
are reviewed." Dr. Manor, how- 
ever, said that "The addition to 
the gym, the sewage, surface 
draining and road improvement 
programs will certainly be com- 
pleted by next September." 
The gym is currently half the 

size that was initially planned. 
Included in the gym addition 
are tentative plans to double the 
size of dressing room space, 
intramural offices, lecture 
rooms, rest rooms, showers, and 
the present activity area. The 
cost of the additions is esti- 
mated to be $250,000. An esti- 
mated $50,000 athletic field pro- 
gram is also in the planning 

Additions to the Technical 
Building, Administration Build- 
ing, Dental Building, are being 
planned. Nursing building. Busi- 
ness building, and English build- 
ing improvements are in the 
drawing board stage. Also a 
study hall addition to the library 
is planned. 

If money permits, after some 
of the more important things 
are completed, a swimming pool 
and mall arc being planned for 
the wide open space between 
the auditorium and the Tech 

The Music building will be- 
come a new lounge. The current 

cafeteria - lounge is to be a 
cafeteria only. The music lx)X, 
bulletin boards, etc. will be 
talcen to the new lounge. The 
present Music building is to 
have an addition, plus a patio, 
and a few other extras to add 
to the comfort of students and 

A teaching resources building 
which will house classrooms, 
closed circuit television, and 
other audio-visual equipment is 
being tentatively planned. Dr. 
Manor explained that if we 
decide to build the teaching 
resources building "it will mean 
that other things will have to 
wait awhile." The building is on 
the drawing board now and is 
circular in shape. 

Di". Manor ventured to say 
that "all plans will be com- 
pleted by late summer of

In just a few hours I board

long sleeve shirts, an empty 
check book and a little Florida 
sunshine into a suit case and 
I'm rarin' to go. 

Something tells mo I'm going 
to be in for quite a shock when 
I step off the idane at Philadel- 
phia International Airiwrt. It's 
hard to believe that snow is 
actually falling in the North as 
I sit here in shcxt sleeve weath- 
er. I'm sure, however, that I 
will become a strong believer 
when that Erst icy blue wind 
cuts through me. 

Media is a real New England- 
ish type town with red brick 

roads, crazy street names, old 
stone houses, and some real 
nice down-to-earlh people with 
all kinds of different accents. 

Our home is just down a 
narrow, windings, iTce-lined road 
from the Hunt Club where it 
is not uncommon t« see red- 
coated hiuiters mount horses, 
set a pack of fox lioinids loose, 
blow a bug^le and pillop off into 
the distance in search of a fox.

Exclusive Interview With Rudolph 

'Comber Staff 

I found the herd of Santa 
Claus' famous reindeer lounging 
around tlie village cafeteria dur- 
ing thoif coffee lif(!ak. Immedi- 
ately I spotted Rudolph with his 
i-ed beak brigluly shining, lean- 
ing against a tree sci'alching his 
hoofs on a rock. The other 
reindeer wore doing what nor- 
ma! dcH'r do at "break time,"; 
nibbling on bark candy bars and 
smoking liclien cigarettes. 

Rudolph was glad to see me 
and nlforc'd to show me around 
Santa's busy North Pole Vil- 
lage. I was told that I could 
not see Santa Claus as ho was 
away for tiu,' day seal hunting. 

"Actually," rasped Rudolph, 
"We doei- air fed up to hoi'e 
over Claus' work policies." 
"Do you realize that we have 
been hauling him and his clum- 
sy sled lor over 300 yc;ars 
without a raise?" 

"There's been talk of a slfilce 
this Christmas," Rudolph 

blurted. "Alter all, some of us 
are getting along in years like 
Dancer and Prancer who don't 
have enough for their pension." 
"We're only reindeer you know 
and pickings have been slim." 
(Rudolph's nose glowed an an- 
gry red, casting a furious glow 
over the snow.l 

"Would you like to see the 
sloigh?" Rudolph asked. It was 
inside a special quonset hut and 
numerous dwarfs wcva at work 
polishing and cleaning it until 
it gleamed like silver. "Many 
people," Rudolph said, "don't 
realize that before every Christ- 
mas, we decir have to put in 
overtime sharpening the blades 
on the sleigh with our antlers 
so they will bo wind resistant." 
"A few weeks ago we asked 
Claus for some No. 8 sandpaper 
to makt> the job easier, and lie 
ignored us." 

"We reindeer have a h'adition 

of pride and we can't stand 

being humiliattid by Claus' pi;l- 

ty demands." "That's why we 

cont'd on page ,3 

I^chr, advised me to plagiarize, 
plagiarize: never let the page 
evade your eyes: and so I 
adopted, shall we say, the title 
which caught .so many eyes and 
brought me fame and fortune. 

In case you hadn't noticed, 
my style is a complication of 
Max Shulman, my idol, and 
Lewis Carroll, also my idol. Or 
maybe I flatter myself? I may 
never sell a pack of cigarettes, 
or go down a rabbit hole, but 
I do fill up space that would 
otherwise be devoted to those 
dreary, little trifles, such as 
'Sebastian Cabot, team member 
of "Stump the Stars" on the 
CBS television network, who left 
school in London at age 14 to 
become a garage helper'. Ho, 

I like to write, love to see 
my name in print and read my 
own articles. Some people have 
ulcers, I have a big ego which 
I constantly feed. 

On parting, God rest ye merry 
gentlemen; Christmas is upon 
us and have a "happy."

Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year 





Holiday Spirit On Campus; 
StuiJents Head For Home 


Associate Editor 

The feeling of Christmas is all 
about us, from the JC campus 
to the downtown streets; from 
the individual greetings to the 
warm friendly gatherings. 

Campus organizations wishing 
to pass the Christmas spirit on 
to others, have been working 
hard on various drives in the 
past few weeks. 

All the religious groups 
banded together to put on a 
clothes drive just before 
Thanksgiving. The clothes were 
given to the Salvation Army and 
■wiU be distributed for Christ- 

Circle-K and K-Ettes joined 
ranks on a toy drive, collecting 
some 65 toys. The gilts were 
packed in boxes and sent to a 
Methodist Orphanage in Enter-, Fla. 

The Foreign Language Club 
has been on a campaign prepai - 
ring "Baskets for the Needy," 
which will also be distributed 
during the holidays. 

The Christmas season sparks 
joyous celebration and several 
groups are gathering for small 
informal parties. 

Dec. 14, the faculty office 
staff, custodial staff, and their 
families celebrated with a din- 
ner. Santa Claus was on hand 
to see that all the children 
received gifts. 

The Mature Students honored 
their teachers at the annual 
Christmas Party Dec. 16, during 
the break. Refreshments and 
seasonal greeting were shared 

The Christmas spirit sur- 
rounds us as we walk the 
campus. Friends shout "Merry 
Christmas," and groups discuss 
future parties. Shimmering holi- 
day decorations from the art 
classes hang from the art build- 
ing and individual classrooms 
sport festive bulletin boards. 

Downtown, the streets are 
lined with Santas, angels, and 
wreaths on every light pole. 

Inside the stores, soft holiday 
music plays and shoppers rush 
about selecting gifts for friends 
and family. Here and there a 
Santa can be seen surrounded 
by children. 

Scattered throughout the com- 
munity, churches present the 
true meaning of Christmas with 
displays of nativity scenes. Or- 
ganists practice the "Messiah" 
and favorite hymns for the 
holiday services soon to come. 

Tomorrow the doors ot 
PBJC close and the holiday 
vacation begins. Students will 
rush to their homes, with as far 
away as New Jersey and Penn- 
sylvania and many as close as 
Lake Worth. Wherever you're 
going, the Beachcomber would 
like to take this opportunity to 
wish you a very Merry Christ- 
mas and Happy New Year.

ated Antlers Association, Veni- 
son Local, 562." 

The next stop on the excursion 
was the gigantic workshop cas- 
cading into the horizon as far as 
I could see. Rudolph got a 
clearance pass for me so f could 
get in. What I saw was impres- 
sive. Hundreds of thousands of 
bearded dwarfs leaning over 
rows and rows of workbenches 
fashioning the millions of ingen- 
ious toys that would delight 
children everywhere ■ 

I asked Rudolph if the dwarfs 
were sometimes dissatisfied 
over working conditions like 
the reindeer. "No," snorted Ru- 
dolph, "and for one good rea- 
son;" "They can't get jobs 
easily except maybe in the 
circus and most of the ch-cuses 
are way down south in Flori 

"Besides, Claus seems to fa- 
vor the dwarfs all the time, 
for instance, last Christmas, 
Claus gave them expensive gifts 

such as shaving kits and elec- 
tric blankets." "What did we 
get?" "Nothing but cheap red 
ribbons to wrap around our 
necks; how cute of him." It 
must have cost the fat man all 
of ten cents!" 

"Things had better get better 
or else old Claus is going to 
have to carry his sleigh on his 
back Chistmas Eve." "He 
could hire a dog team but they 
can't fly like we can." "Our job 
is a highly skilled trade and not 
every buck out of the woods can 
handle it." 

Rudolph led me from the 
workshop area toward the living 
quarteis. Atwut ten thousand 
concrete apartments lined the 
streets of the village. "Did you 
know" Rudolph continued, "that 
Claus charges us rent for these 
"fire-traps?" "He even charges 
extra during the season, and 
shuts off the electricity at nine 
at night which gripes the heck 
out of us because we miss the 
good television shows." 

"Santa can be a real right 
guy if he wants to." Rudolph 
reflected. "But near Christmas 
his ulcers give him trouble so 
he takes it out on us." "I'm 
optimistic that Santa will listen 
to reason and settle these prob- 

"Say, where did you say you 
were from? PALM BEACH

Christmas Editorial 

Editorial Writer 

We have once again arrived at our annual colobration o£ 
the ^.h of Jesus Cifrist and I am sure that we are aU hasten^ 
i„g in pious preparation to honor his name. For example, the 
iLs have been promoting Christmas since October, but tlu. ., 
of course, only a genuine display of affection and recognition foi 
Christ not a commercialized. money-mal<ing scheme. One oi 
the things I have noticed more than anything else in tins season 
of good will is the profuse flow of brotherly love that I suppose 
is stimulated by the very thought of Christmas; the pat.'ons 
of the various shops push and shove each other around wiU 
more enthusiasm and vigor, they argue with one another and 
with the clerks more vociferously tlian u.sual, and, in general, 
show their enthusiasm to revere Christ. Of course, .' e reasoning 
behind their aclions can only be explained by their groat lov(> 
for Christ and their desire to show him how well one person 
can out purchase another, a satisfactory test of devotion. 

Observe, for example, a liquor store a day or two before 
Christmas and evaluate what you see, A mass of distempered 
humanity will appear before your eyes and you may reel in 
disgust or you may simply watch with amusement, depending 
upon your temperament. Don't be alarmed, for these pcop'o are 
merely preparing to drink a toast to Jesus Christ on his birth- 
day, much the same as they would drink to anyone else. 

The Fourth Wise Man 

The story has been told by 
many far more eloquent and 
erudite than I. Tlie stable, the 
crowded Inn, the bright star on 
high and the Three Wise Men 
who came with frankincense 

and myrrh. II is the story that 
pfofounclly moved the world and 
has changed the outlook and 
action of men for 2000

in that crowded town of Bethle- 
hem, where lliere were no quar- 
ters and thousands roamed 
about, whether or not there 
might have been a fourth wise 

Tlie three who came to pay 
homage to tlie now baby, born , 
King of the Jews, had crossed 
two continents, borne precious 
gifts befitting the world's most 
important ov<>, and W(!re im- 
moi-talized in llic pug(>s of the 
Bible, in I he minds of men and 
in tlie fable and folklore of 
count less p<'oples and cultures. 
Tlieir notoriety was (earned by 
the uniqueness of their achieve- 
ment and llieir refusal to be 
lurn(!d l)aek at many a stop. 

If he were there, no one 
knows of him. No one but God 
iiimself. There i.s no note in 
history for him, no Hall of 
Fame, no place at all. But il 
liie leans filled his eyes, and 
if lie fell to ills knees in fear 
and amazement as his three 
bn>thrc>n did inside — then 
indeed liis place in heaven must 
be witii tlie otlw'r three. 

If Clirlstnias brings to each 
of us no othcn- message than a 
possibility of a fourth wise man, 
then we can be content. For il 
will lead us quickly to realize 
that we cannot measure our 
f(;llow man by his wealth, or 
fume, or place in histoi-y. For 
we may not know of his good 
works, or his devotion, or his 
personal inspiration. We Imow 
not ills name, or' his color, or 
his creed. We cannot but look 
at each of our follow men and 
say, perhaps tliere is the fourth 
wisti man, ciiosen not for his 
eartlily talents or possessions,

ways of tiie Lord - for what 
is (ieep inside him.

Santa Clous On Every Corner 

'Comber Slaff 

How many children actually 
believe in Santa Glaus any- 
more? II seems to mo that as 
I grow older, my belief in Saint 
Nick dwindles sadly. I speak 
from a small store of expei'i- 
ence. My young next door 
neiglibors, age 21/2 and 5, are 
firm advocates of the Christmas 
Spirit and all other aspects of 
it. But I am vehemently against 
a Santa Claus on every street 
corner, in all department stores 
and even in tlie local butcher 
sliop. How do parents explain 
this repetition to their vulnera- 
ble childr-en? II is a gross error, 
which the American iDusiness- 
men .are committing, to over- 
play and commereialize a holi- 
day that has lost so very much 
of "its spiritual value. I am told 
that two generations ago, people 
baked cookies and candy, made 
hand sewn clothes, and trimmed 
the trees with popcorn string.s, 
craniierries etc; that is, real 

What will the advertising 
agencies arrange next? Mrs. 
Santa Claus and ten little elves 
at cverv hot dog stand? Perhaps 

I have no imagination in these 

Another question I 1 iiise is — 
where liave all the twinkling 
eyes, cheeks and pot bel- 
lies K<»»«'' I ■"»'' '"^ nuieli like 
Santa Ohuis as do som<> of those 
frauds. Who ever heard of Mr.

trates the jolly picture I have 
of him in iny minds' eye.

What Man Has Made' USK-Wouldi It Do Any Good? Aug. To Mark 

Term Change 

Editorial Writer 

Once again we acknowledge the new year, some 
as though it is a new life, others as a refreshing 
chance to offer profound resolutions, at least for a few 
days. Regardless of our intentions, whether adhered 
to or not, let us with the grace of God, conjure up 
enough sanity or simple common sense to help us 
prevent a recurrence of even the slightest image of 
the world's most dastardly year, 1963. 

In all of modern history, we will never conceive 
of more tension and world-wide heartbreak, not to 
mention stagnancy in man's relationship with himself. 
than in the year 1963. A nuclear test ban treaty wa-, 
signed and threats of war were slill exhibited in Berlin. 
The Negro made advances and all seemed well until 
racist elements in the South showed their inhumanity 
by dynamiting a church and taking innocent lives. 
The Negroes, in their typical dignified and tactful 
manner, demonstrated nationally and made complete 
asses of themselves and their supposedly qualified and 
reverent leaders on many occasion. 

God help us to examine our faults in 1964 and 
stand beside each other as Americans should, regardless 
of race, color or religious conviction. We are all guilty 
of pjrejudice, even if only to a small degree, and until 
we dissolve it in the solution of love for one another, 
we will become a nation divided in character. Our 
President died in 1963 as a direct result of a man's 
hatred for man. We may never attain complete harmony 
among ourselves, but we can attempt at least to obstruct 
the flow of prejudice that is so prevalent" in our modern 
society. William Wordsworth said in his "Lines Written 
in Early Spring," "And much it grieved my heart 
to think What man has made of man." That was 
written in the early 19th century and still, unfortunately, 
applies today. It is time we did somethng about man's 
iiSiumanity to man.

Editorial Contribution 
By Anne Ellen Quincey 

There has been, since the assassmation of President 
John F. Kennedy, a frantic rush of re-naming of things. 
Charities, roads, a missile base, community centers, 
museums, parks, and perhaps the state now called 
West Virginia are hastily having their labels whipped 
off and replaced by shiny-new "In Memory Of" tags. 
And people act as though their magnanimity should 
be congratulated for these acts. 

We well may wake up one morning and find out 
that the name of the country has been changed to 
"The United States of Kennedy." We can at that time 
"pat ourselves on our collective backs for being such 
good sports, and go right on hating each other in 
general and Negroes in particular. 

Who wouldn't be proud to have his name posthu- 
mously placed on such an intensive and varigated blood- 

How easy it will all have been! Having made the 
supreme sacrifice (after all, names are important and 
we may have to throw out all our maps) we can 
continue any way we choose. We will have done right 
by Nell, so to speak. 

Who could ask lor miore? (Indeed, who is in any 
position to?) 
I can. 

There is nothing wrong with memorials. However, 
I think that the number of them and the terrible 
desperation with which they are being established is 
indicative of a desire for self-justification and penance 
on the part of the nation. I think that they are to 
be expected. And I think that, excepting the possible 
solace they may bring to the family of the deceased, 
they are futile. 

When the Chamber of Commerce of a community 
rushes (c^lbeit, belatedly) to honor a man in death 
to whom it did no particular honor in life, there must 
be in that Chamber of Commerce a desire to follow 
the rest of the nation (to hell with integrity!) or a 
desire to right what it now considers a wroner. 

If this is so, we are all damned. Perhaps a few 
it come only now, when it can do him no good? 

Oh, come, say the sages, this is how the world 
is, and nobody can change it. 

If this is so, we are all dmaned. Perhaps a few 
know it. 

To honor the late President is necessary and correct. 
But to honor him in empty gesture, in prescribed ritual, 
on every unthinking streetcorner, removes all meaning 
from the honor we wish to do him. 

The way to perpetuate John F. Kennedy, if he 
should be perpetuated, is not to name our streets, 
our children, and our pet dogs after him. The way 
to perpetuate John F. Kennedy is to insist, each one 
of us, on the enactment of the ideals to which he 
so passionately adhered. It is not to glance heedlessly 
at painted letters of a road everyone continues to call 
Southern Boulevard, but willingly and with knowledge 
of the consequences, give ourselves to the "long twilight 
fight" he spoke of in his inaugural address. It is to 
examine ourselves for prejudice as one examines a 
wall for insects, and w^hen we find it, to exterminate 
it. It is not to erect (vi^ith our pocketbooks but without 
our hearts) a concrete edifice named Kennedy, but 
to have the courage (yes, Virginia, the guts) to endorse 
the stand he took on, say, civil rights — or the courage 
to admit we abandon him forever. 

The one thing which the life and the death of 
this man must have accomplished is the striking of 
a deathblow to hypocrisy. 

Here is the only fitting monument: the concrete 
carrying out of his ideals. If those ideals were not 
fit, he does not deserve remembrance. And if we are 
not worthy of those ideals, we presume far too much 
when we say we have the right to build monuments 
to him, even in stone.

PBJC will launch a new term 
system called 'Year Around 
Operation' with the Pall of next 
year. These terms wOI x;oincide 
with the state institutions' tri- 
mester system. 

There will be three major 
terms: the Fall term and 
Winter term with 16 weeks 
each, and the Spring term with 
two six-week sessions. 

Because of the change, 
c'Ia.sscs for the Fall term will 
begin Aug. 28, two weeks earlier 
than our present system, and 
end liefore Christmas vaca- 

Tlie Winter term wiU begin 
after New Years and end in 
April. The Spring term will be 
split with the second session 
limed to enable the high school 
student to enter college follow- 
ing his graduation. 

Three commencement pro- 
grams will be held during the 
year, one following each term, 
No commencement wHl be held 
after the first session of the 
Spring term. 

Witli tlie clianges in terms wUl 
come changes in daily struc- 
ture. Classes will be lengthened 
from 50 to GO minutes and may 
start !W» early as 7:30. The 
n>id-inorning brealis will be 
abulislicd. Clubs will iiave to 
plan their meetings for a differ- 
ent time, probably the fifth 

Dean Glynn has requested 
that clubs and organizations 
determine how club elections 
and meeting times should be 
handled In the 'Year Around 
Operation' and turn their opin-

A Master Cheat Plan 

By Ron Johnson 

The days of wine and roses will 
soon turn to those ugly days of 
coffee and "No-Doz" tablets as 
final exams loom ahead. For 
some students, however, tests 
might mean more booze (to 
drown out the agony of a 50 
question fil-in test), but that's 
beside the point. 

Like ail good college papers 
we have to have an editorial, 
or at least a comment, on 
cheating. I've always felt that 
students will continue to 
cheat. The pressure of college 
sometimes strains the eyeball 
towards a neighbor's exam 
paper. I don't really care if 
anyone cheats as long as the 
curve isn't affected. 
One of the most masterful 
attempts at cheating that I ever 
heard of actually happened last 
year at a southwestern universi- 

It seemed that some guy 
probably spent more time devis- 
ing a "master cheat plan" than 
he would have actually studying 
for the exam. 

The test was handed out. The 
kid waited for a couple of 
minutes, picked up his test and 
pencil and went up to the pencil 
sharpener. The sharpener was 
by the window. The kid coolly 
slipped the test out of the 
window (he was on the second 
floor) landing it neatly in the 
hands of his waiting roommates. 
His roommates quickly ran 
back to their room -.nd looked 
up the answers and filled in the 
test blanks. They slipped the 
test Into a special deUvery 
envelope and one roommate 
hightailed it back to the class- 
room with the envelope. The 
prof pointed the student out and 
the messenger boy took the 
"important letter" to the "stu- 

The prof, however, 'snuk' up 
behind the student as he 
pulled out the test from the 
envelope, foiling the plan. 

Oh well, back to the draw- 
ing board and you might add 
a little wine to my cup. 

Campus Combings 


'Comber Staff 

The new year is here and so 
are the noble resolutions voiced 
by PBJC students. Overheard in 
the lounge and in the library, 
are the evidences of dynamic 
changes that wUl take place 
around the campus in "64". 

"Finally it is time to do 
something alxiut my weight ... 
I'll add another 100 lbs. to each 

"I will stop that disgusting 
habit of flinging trash on the 
grass and dirtying up the cam- 
pus ... I will fling trash m the 
halls and clutter up the corri- 
dors instead." 

"I will refrain from stenciling 
my name on faculty parking 
blocks . . . Instead I'll bring my 
own stenciled parking 


"I'll stop smoking Ijecause it 
is so unhealthy, and mainly 
because 'chawing' tol>acco is 
good exercise for the gums." 

"The time has come to stop 
slamming myself to school at 
80 mph, just in time for the 

late bell. With my new '64 
Lotus, I can slam myself to 
school at 160 mph, just in time 
for the late tiell." 

"I will stop that annoying 
habit of whispering in the li- 
br£U-y ... m scream in- 

"On the agenda this year, I 

plan to devote more time to my 

homework ... like dusting off 

text books and cleaning up after 

messy roommates." 

"My motto for '64 will be 
moaeration in all things ... 

except those things which I en- 

"I'D bring to a halt that 
asinine act of cutting aU my 
classes to the lunit the first 
week of every semester ... I'll 
wait until the second week." 

"I'm going to stop griping 
about signing my name 500 
times during registration. TU 
sign my name 500 times in the 
army and eripe "

arm of the Insitute of World 
Affairs founded by the Haddens 
over 30 years ago. Ten noted 
speakers will follow Chuong to 
the famous Round Table spot- 

With Vietnam of interest to 
all lately, the talk should prove 
to be interesting. Many male 
students on the campus especi- 
ally will be anxious to hear 
what is to come hi the troubled 
land of Vietnam because the 
draft is directly involved. 

The Beachcomber has sent 
out personal invitations to cho- 
sen students to attend the talk. 
All students are invited and 
must wear semi-formal attire.

Associate Editor 

Florida Atlantic University, 
the institution with vast new 
learning concepts and ideas, 
will open its doors to students 
for the first time in September, 

It win be the first university 
in the nation to omit the fresh- 
man and sophomore years and 
offer only the junior, senior, and 
graduate areas of study. 

The new university wiB be 
based on the trimester system 
like that of the three other state 
universities. Some courses will 
be available in special terms 
during the summer to accommo- 
date public school teachers and 
other special interest groups. 

Enrolhnent in the nrst fall 
trhnester is expected to be 
prhnarily juniors but a few 
seniors and graduates may be 

All applicants to FAU should 
complete a minimum of 60 
semester hours in academic 
subjects including the general 
education program of PBJC to 
be eligible for admission. 

Although FAU wiU not be 
officially accredited until It 
graduates its first class, stu- 
dents need not be concerned 
with accreditation, said Jack C. 
Guistwhite, Registrar. Any stu- 
dent wishing to transfer from 
FAU wUl be given a letter of 
accreditation from the Southern 
Association of Colleges and Sec- 
ondary Schools which should be 
accepted anywhere in the na- 
tion. He added that when FAU 
does become accredited it will 
be retroactive and aU class work 
already completed by students 
will become accredited.

The Year Ahead 

By Don Gilchrest 
Sports Editor 

Well, 1964 is finally here and 
the sports world is going to 
have a very big year for both 
the amateurs and the profes- 

The year of 1964 should prove 
to be one of the most historic 
at Palm Beach Junior College, 
as once again the students await 
two words ; Intercollegiate 
Sports. The students now sit 
back and await the final deci- 

Later this month the best of 
the amateur athletes of the 
United States and many foreign 
countries travel to Innsbrucke, 
Austria, for the Winter Olym- 
pics. This year the Americans 
should show the other nations 
that they are there to win the 
team title. The Americans look 
very strong in every department 
and should represent the United 
States very well. This is the year 
for the United States to show 
the Soviet Union that America 
is the best nation in the world. 

The major intercollegiate bas- 
ketball teams are going along 
with the usual number of up- 
sets. Many sports fans are 
wondering if the high flying 
Ramblers of Loyola University 
of Chicago, can regain the touch 
that led them to the ISfCAA 
Championship last year. One 
team that may stop the Ram- 
blers is the University of Ken- 
tucky. Kentucky this year has 
suffered one deaf eat, at the 
hands of Georgia Tech. Current- 
ly the Wildcats, led by high 
scoring Cotton Nash, is one of 
the top teams in the nation. 

One other baslcetball story is 
being written at the present as 
the Professional Basketball 
Champs, the Boston Celtics, 
continue winning without the 
fabulous Bob Cousy. I still can- 
not see a team even challenging 
the Celtics, who should win their 
sixth title in a row. 

Next sport on the agenda for 
1964 will be baseball. The col- 
lege season will continue to 
improve as it has in the last 
few years. Look for the Florida 
State Seminoles to be one of the 
powers in Intercollegiate Base- 
ball. Other contenders in the 
baseball picture will be the 
Trojans of Southern California, 
the defending NCAA Champs, 
and the Michigan State team. 
Michigan State has always been 
in the top ten in the nation. 

The Major League season pre 
mieres the second week of Apri 
and that will be the time to 
take a look at the new look of 
the New York Yankees. The 
Yankees unveil, for the first 
time anywhere, their new man-

ager, Yogi Berra. Are the 
Yanlcs pulling a stunt to attract 
the crowd or are they serious? 
This question will be answered 
in three months. Will the New 
York Mets hit the first division 
as they are capable of doing? 
With the man behind the Mets, 
who built the Yanicees, the Mets 
should start to piclt up this year 
and continue up for the next 
few years. The Detroit Tigers 
should be strengthened with the 
addition of a couple of top-nitch 
pitchers and a shortstop-second 
base combination. In the Na- 
tional League, watch the St. 
Louis Cardinals, who gave the 
Dodgers a real scare. The 
World Series will go seven 
games with two very evenly 
matched teams. 

The states of Florida and 
Arizona can get a sneal? pre- 
view with the Grapefruit and 
Cactus Leagues in action. In 
West Palm Beach, Municipal 
Stadium wUl show off some of 
the top teams during the Mil- 
waukee Braves exhibition 

Next September the pigskin 
will be flying through the air m 
the Intercollegiate ranks as the 
top teams of the 1963 season 
go out to prove the season was 
no fluke. Look for Roger Staub- 
ach to steer Navy to a winning 
season but no bowl bids. 
Watch the Gators growl up at 
Florida and wind up in one of 
the post season bowl games. 
The Hurricanes should improve 
somewhat over their miserable 
1963 season. 

The pros of the football ranks 
will get into high gear with the 
finest array of rookie stars com- 
ing from the college ranks to 
make their presence felt. Roo- 
kies like George Mira of Miami, 
Scott Appleton of Texas, Bob 
Brown of Nebraska, Jack Con- 
cannon of Boston College, Vem 
Burke of Oregon State, Don. 
Trull of Baylor, and Ode Burrell 
of Mississippi State should make 
their bosses pop their buttons 
with pride as they sliow off their 
dazzling talent they all have. 

Other sports which will hit the 
collegiate and pro ranks will be 
hockey, soccer, tennis, golf, and 

The hockey situation in the 
collegiate ranks have some 
teams who have been in the 
NCAA tourney in the past few 
years. The University of Den- 
ver, Colorado, Clark, Minnesota, 
Michigan State, Boston Univer- 
sity, Boston College, and Har- 
vard always play rock 'em sock 
'em hockey. 

This is just a little of what 
to expect during the 1964 Sea- 
son. One thing not to forget this 
year is to follow our U.S. 
athletes as they participate Jn 
the 1964 Winter Olympics. The 
nation will be able to follow the 
Americans in action, as the 
Olympics will be televised.

Closet Space Turns To Heaven Soon 
Music Department Moves Quarters 

JEACHCO^^BER Fnd»v 4,n...n : ; »* P«f .=, 


•Comber Staff 

"We literally teach in clos- 
ets!" said Miss Letha Madge 
Royce, chairman of the Music 
Department, as she described 
the rapid growth of the depart- 
ment at PBJC. 

Nine years ago, the quarters 
were more than adequate, in- 
deed a great improvement over 
former facilities, but with the 
Increased enrollment, every 
available nook and cranny has 
been utilized including closets 
and officers for private lessons, 
and class and practice rooms. 

Not only are tlie quarters 
close, but also the harmony in 
this department is not confined 
to tlie keyboard. The five in- 
structors, all with different 
specialties in tlie field, are 
happy collaborators in the af- 
fairs of the Music department 
and share a hobby. The faculty 
members have organized a "Re- 
corder consort" made up of a 
bas,s, tenor, aito and two so- 
prano recorders. They practice 
once a week and play "for fun," 
mostly Elizabethan music. They 
have further reason to have a 
happy outlook as they plan to 
move into new, larger quarters 
in the Fine Arts building in 
January 1964. 

The staff is composed of Miss 
Royce, Mr. Otis P. Harvey, Dr. 
Robert C. Lawes, Mr. D. Hugh 
Albee and Dr. C. Paul Harper. 

The five faculty members all 
give private lessons as well as 
class and group instruction in 
Music Theory, band and choral 
work. In addition, they each 
instruct several Music Appreci- 
ation courses, of which there 
are eleven sections. 

Miss Royce said the Music 
department at PBJC offers all 
the work, on a college level, 
that is required by a Music 
major to go on to any institute 
of higher learning in order to 
acquire a Bachelor of Music 
degree or Minister of Music, 

In comparison to other Junior 
College music departments, she 
said PBJC has the best facilities 
and the largest staff. "Other 
Junior CoUeges haven't reached 
the point we have in courses 
offered and enrollment, but," 
she said, "they are working up 
to it." The only one she indica- 
ted as comparable is Dade 
Junior College and they fiave 
the same size band. 

Miss Royce is well qualified 
to report on the department's 
progress, having been connected 
with the Music department here 
for the last fifteen years. In 
order to have one at all, the 
Instructors had to double up and 
teach many other courses. She 
hersielf, taught Mathematics, 
Business, Engineering, Art, and 
Music. Then in 1955, when PBJC 
moved to the present Campus, 
a system of departments was 
adopted and Miss Royce was 
made chairman of the Music De- 

The department has a concert 
band of sixty members under 
the direction of Dr. Lawes and 
a choral group of 50 singers led 
by Dr. Harper. Besides private 
lessons in voice, and piano and 
other instruments, classes in 
voice are now available. In 
these classes voice Instruction 
includes tone quality, place- 
ment, poise, proper breathing 
and rhythm. These points 
make it a popular course for 
students in other departments. 

One of the reasons for the 
rapid growth of this particular 
department was attributed to 
the community need for a good 

strong music department be- 
cause it is essentially a cultural 
area. Many PBJC music majors 
sing with Opera Lyrica, perform 
with the area Symphonies, sing 
in local and church groups, and 
take part in civic programming, 
such as six or eight Christmas 
programs in the county this 
season. The instructors them- 
selves contribute to the musical 
demands of the area; Miss 
Royce is the organist for St. 
Joseph's Episcopal Church in 
Boynton Beach, Mr. Alljee is 
choir director in Riviera Beach 
and Dr. Harper is organist for 
West Palm Beach Baptist 

The evening music section 
includes many music teachers 
and church organists, as stu- 
dents, who are taking the Music 
Theory courses and voice les- 
sons on a college level in order 
to pass the type of certification 
required of music teachers. 
Then too, there are students 
who come to learn more aliout 
the subject in order to appreci- 
ate their own Hi-Fi music, and 
for a better appreciation of 
concert music. 

The Music Department is 
highly specialized as one would 
expect it to be and like any 
other speciality, it takes a lot 
of work, ability and dedication, 
to be a Music Major. 

The College singers, under the 
direction of Dr. C. Paul Harper, 
performed for the student as- 
sembly in Novemt>er, and in the 
Christmas Assembly with the 
Band. This group of fifty some 
students are not all majoring 
in music. They rehearse three 

times a week and sing classic, 
semi-classic and selected popu- 
lar numbers. 

The Band, under the direction 
of Dr. Lawes, has increased to 
full instrumentation, which is 
presently around sixty members. 
It is known as a Concert Band 
tiecause no strings are In- 

The Student Government re- 
cently made it possible for the 
Band to be fully outfitted for 
a formal concert. The coat used 
is a light blue modified tuxedo 

Both the Singers and the Band 
will combine, with private stu- 
dents as soloists, to present a 
Music Festival in the Spring in 
order to celebrate their moving 
into the new Fine Arts build- 

The height of the year for all 
in the Music departoent, both 
faculty and students, will be 
when they move into their new 
quarters in January. Sweet mu- 
sic wUl be made in the new 
modem stucco Humanities 
building with exterior enamel 
and veil brick walls. 

They can expand immensely 
in the nine soundproofed, air- 
conditioned practice rooms 
where each memi>er ot the 
faculty has his own study and 
private class room. Tliere is to 
be a band room, a choral room, 
three class rooms for Music 
Appreciation, Theory and group 
voice classes. A Music Lil>rary 
will be in one room and the 
department's electrical sound 
equipment in another. 

They will have reached high

The Cellar Door 

By Ron Johnson 

I'm so nervous about the 
recent government smoking re- 
port that I'm up to nearly two 
packs a day. That report was 
reaUy bad news. The people 
that I usually bum from have 
quit and my columnist cohort, 
Miss Chris Phillips (Room At 
The Top Of The Stairs), is 
fearing for the livelihood of 
Marlboro writer Max Shulman. 

I'm sorry to report to Chris 
and other Shulman worshipers 
that the Beachcomber will bo 
forced to discontinue the Marl- 
boro column. The following is a 
note placed on my desk from 
Jack Dorn, 'Comber business 

"The Marlboro coliinin i.s hu- 
morous ami the students aeem 
to enjoy and look forward to 
it. I leel, however, that we, 
should drop the column since 
tlje government report, re,leiis(>(l 
on l-ll-'64, states that cigarette 
smoking i.s a <!ause of cancer. 
Tlie fact tliat a cigarette has 

a filter does not reduce the 
chances of lung cancer. I pc;-- 
sonally have stopped suioldng 
Marlboror; as of l-ll-'04. I now 
.smoke ii pipe." 

That's the way the old ball 
bounces these days. Max Shul- 
man is the victim of govcrnmenl 
reporting. No longer will his 
talents grace the page-, of the 
Beachcomber. After all, as 
someone said, "It is against our 
policy to advorti'-'o a product 
harrriful to the students." The 
policy used to be only conccr'ncd 
with dope and booz(> — now 

No one will ever catch me 
smoking a pipe. So I do gel 
cancer. As long as tiie bug holds 
off until I'm at least up lo llie 
half century mark, I :.>ouldn't 
care less. There's nothing lo do 
after 50 anyway except play 
shuffleboard and get in tlie way 
of speeding college students. 

You got a light? 


Editorial Writer 

A simple word, whether it be English, French, 
German, or even Sanscrit, can easily be misinterpreted. 
In a recent editorial regarding an objective view of 
the year 1963, a term was used in what was intended 
to be a light, satirical vein, but was unfortunately 
regarded by the group affected as a biting indictment 
directed at them. If the entire worlc is examined, one 
can easily see that no offense was intended, liowevor 
the author realizes, after re-evaluating his material, 
that the term he used was not in the best of taste. 
He would also like to point out that in writing, as 
in most vocations, one learns from experience and 
this is a precise example of the process of learning. 

Campus Combings 

'Comber Staff 

As one looks up into the 
granite sky, he realizes with 
gut-churning horror that finals 
are here. Every conscientious 
student takes stock and finds 
only 500 pages of Social Science 
to suck up; 2 accounting prac- 
tice sets to bluff through; and 
3 makeup tests in accelerated 
basket weaving to mesh. 

Weekends are used with great 
care as tense students tool up 
mental resources "burning the 
midnight oil" watching tele- 
vision. Others strain sweated 
borows wincing as Lake Worth 
ges ahead 80 to 79. The more 

ambitious persons cram in ear- 
nest; poor Earnest. Some schol- 
ares eagerly await the finals 
quivering In anticipation, having 
studied for months like raving 
maniacs every possible question 
that could be asked, only to find 
their minds go blank witii over- 
saturation. Night owls stare 
glassy-eyed; fogged up by a 
hundred cups of coffee, A few 
relaxed students have really 
found tlie answer. They laugh 
uproai-iously at mountains of 
unsolved math problems; jok- 
ingly sluff off massive amounts 
of untranslated Spanish and 
with a positive gusto joyously 
flunk out. 

Alpha Fi Club Sells Directories 

The Alpha Fi Social Club is

they had printed to help the 
students in their college com-

ber. This cost is to cover the 

The (Jirectory contains the 
names, addresses, and tele- 
phone numbers of all day and 
night students attending the col- 
lege. The advertisements in the 
directory are carefully chosen

By the time this goes to press 
the government will have an- 
nounced that tlicrc is a definite, 
irrefutable link between cigar- 
ett and cancer. I am greatly 
distressed, indeed concerned 
about the national repercussions 
this statement will make. 

Not since the Oliarle.s Van 
Dorn - $(i'l,000 (Jucwtiou scandal 
lias (he country had (o choose 
between moral responsibility 
and liedonistic plea-sures. As if 
our lives were not complicated 
enough worrying about the 
bomb, (h« mortgage, and wlieth- 
w Liz will niari-y Iturton or just 
remain friends, tlie governnieut 
forces us to recognize a*: 
conflict not easily resolved. 

Beside shattering the precari- 
ou.s emotional stability of the 
country, the econonnic reverber- 
ations will be scorching. Adding 
to the already unemployed, will 
be millions of disgruntled folk 
with not even a cigarette to 
pass the time. Horrors! They

will be .selling apples next thing 
we know 

In particular, people like Max 
Shulman will bo pounding the 
paveinent. Who will read amus- 
ing articles about Marlboro 
cigarettes if no one is smoking? 
This will be a sorry slate of 
affairs if people can't smile or 
smoke. Max Shulman 's talents 
ceitainly can't be wasted just 
because cigtu'cttes cause lung 
cancer and allied respiratory- 
cardiac diseases. 

If the government wants us 
to worry, let's worry about 
.something big like the bomb. 
Why create! public panic! Big 
broth<M' can tell us to pay taxes, 
respect Mom and the Flag and 
Ignore Bobby Bakei' but never 
inveigle us to quit the? cigareHos,

Danes Hop, Skip and Jump 
Through PBJC Performance 

Sports Editor 

Tlie Danish Gymnastics Team 
performed here last Friday with 
the coordination, technique and 
balance that lias won them 
world acclaim. 

The highhghts of the program 
included the individual free 
exercise movements ol' Annie 
Adriasen and Morten Nilou. 

One of the most colorful parts 
of the program was the troupe's 
performance of the different 
Danish folk dances. Each of the 
foll( dances represented a part 
of Denmark. An unusual dance 
was the Ox Dance, which repre- 
sents the Freshmen trying to 
become part of older groups at 

The men of the troupe per- 
formed hand and headstands, 
supported by another member 
of the group. 

Performing the balancing act, 
the women sliowed a talent in 
sense of balance on beams 
measuring SVi inches in width. 
The girls performed poses such 

as the arabesque, attitudes, and 

In the closing act the men 

performed handsprings and 

straddle vaulting over the Swed- 

ish Vaulting Box. At one time 
during the last act, the perform- 
ei's had seven men on tlio box. 

The program was concluded 
with the singing of the Danisli 
National Anthem. 


Thomas Walker (1715-179-1), phy- 
sician, soldier and explorer, 
born in King and Queen County, 
Va., was the first white man 
to make a recorded expedition 
to Kentucky. He discovei'od snd 
named the Cumberland Moun- 
tains, Cumberland Gap and

Corps Cyclone 
Shelter Builder 
Visits Campus 

Jira McKay. Peace Corps Vol- 
unteer who sej-ved in Pakistan. 
was on campus Monday to talk 
with PBJC students about en- 
tering the Peace Corps. 

McKay spoke duiing the 
break of his work in Pakistan 
and lectured to several classes 
during the day. He was availa- 
Ijle for consultation in the stu- 
dent lounge and supervised the 
Peace Corps testing in the after- ■ 

noon. „ ^ . 

When the Executive Order ot 
the President was issued in 
Mai-ch, 1961, establishing the 
Peace Corps. Jim McKay was 
one of tlie fiist to submit his 
application for overseas serv- 


In his two years in West 
Pakistan. McKay helped build 
bridges, schools, drainage sys- 
tems, and a college. For a few 
months he was assigned to a 
special project in East Pakistan 
where he and Peace Corps 
Vohinteer Engineers helped de- 
sign the first cyclone shelter m 
Asia. McKay supervised the 
construction of this shelter 
which has proved so effective 
that the Government of East 
Pakistan is planning to build 
many more shelters along the 
coast of the Bay of Bengal. 

McKay commented that the 
people of Pakistan were .suspi- 
cious but very hospitable - so 
hospitable that he drank as 
many as 24 cups of tea m one 

Although McKay worked in 
the villages he would come to 
town about every two weeks. 
Here he was faced with ex- 
plaining why the U.S. sent arms 
to India or why we had integra- 
tion problems. McKay said he 
usually wormed out of it W 
saying. "Well, President Kenne- 
dy didn't consult me." 

Since he returned home, Mc-- 
Kay has worked as a special 
assistant to Peace Corps head- 
quarters in Washington ai^a 
plans to return to school early 
next year.

Ammerman started working 
on campus projects to make 
PBJC a better place to study 
and enjoy college life. 

His pet project this year has 
been the picnic and recreation 
area which in August, 1963, was 
only a dream. Since then the 
grounds have been alloted, the 
land has been cleared, construc- 
tion has been planned and park 
benches have been installed.

Comber Editorial Leading The Way OnCampus 

Our Campus (Con't. from Page 1) 

There is, however, one glaring wealiness in Student 

.Government lack of communications. The recent 

dance debacle was a typical example of this breakdown. 
The 'Comber was shocked to hear that a second band 
was hired just by agreement of a few at a hastily, 
perhaps illegally, called gathering in which an inade- 
quate number of SGA members were present to conduct 
business in keeping with the SGA Constitution. Tonight's 
dance, sponsored by SGA, turned into a "merry-go- 
round" of bands. Tonight, the "Comber learned at press 
time, that the Valentine's Dance involved two 
bands, Ralph Marterie and a local group, the Paul 
Chafin Band, which will be paid but will not ap- 
pear. It seems as though the break in communications 
produced the infamous two-band error. 

The students of Palm Beach Junior College demand 
an effective Student Government. Ammerman, our 
leader, has resigned, but Student Government leaders 
must recover from the setback. They must appoint 
a new president to govern the "big business" of student 
leadersliip. An improved system of communications 
must be set up. Who actually has control of what and 
when and where? All officials must be aware of what 
the other officials are doing and when and where. 

The dance mistakes were merely the "crowning 
blow" to Bruce Ammerman. He has washed his hands 
of Student Government. We do not want a replay of 
last year's Student Government game of "who's presi- 
dent today". We have a fundamentally adequate SGA 
organization. Palm Beach JC will look on now and 
watch. Will SGA make a comeback? Will communica- 
tions between officials be repaired and bolstered? Will 
a well-qualified, capable, president be appointed by the 
executive council? 

SGA is under pressure. Will they produce? 

Love: "Tender and pa.ssionate 
affection for one of the opposite 
sex." That is how Webster 
defines the English Language's 
sometimes over used but favor- 
ite word.

The Cellar Door 

Patting Girls' Behinds . . . 

By Ron Johnson 
Editor-] n-Chief 

I suppose every columnist 
reaches a low point in writing 
. , , a low ebb tliat is worse 
than any rut every thought 
about being. For the past ftjw 
weeks I have been searching 
tor campus controversy, may- 
be a little dirt, perhaps some- 
Uiing heart-warming to till the 
lines of the Cellar Door. But 
there just doesn't seem to be 
any liglrtbulbs popping. I don't 
even wake up in my sleep any- 
more with an insphation. One 
night I awoke out of a dead 
slumber with a tremendous iea 
and jotted down a few key 
words that would remind me in 
" the morning. The next morning 
my notes read—' ' candy , gum and 
turtles are in the street we 
must act now." Porliaps the 
psychologist on 'Breaking Point' 
could give me an explanation 
for the midniglit editorial, but 
I still can't figure it out. Oh, 
well, I guess I must admit that 
"there are never dull days, just 
dull reporters." It breaks my 
heart to admit it. 

As a last resort to uncover 
ideas I decided to ask some of 
my friends for ideas. I heard 
the following suggestions. 

1. Write an editorial against 
So and So for patting girls on 
tlie behind. 

2. "I think So and So and So 
and So are having an affair.", 

3. Start a campaign to get a 

covered wallcway from the den- 
tal hygiene building to the main 

4. Those old standbys . . . 
noise in the library and new 
parking lots. 

5. The campus cops hiding 
behind parked cars to snatch 
speeding students. 

G. A dress code for PBJC 

Maybe I could whip up some 
real gangbuster columns with 
the above ideas, but for one 
thing, I would be chicken to 
write about students or faculty 
in a derrogative manner. The 
noise in the library is sucli a 
trite subject. Affairs are none 
of my business. The campus 
cops are merely doing their 
duty to catch speeders and 
besides they haven't caught mc 
yet. We may never get resur- 
faced parking lots, so wiry fight 
it? I really don't care if Dental 
Hygiene gets a covered walk. 
I'm not in hygiene, (Maybe I 
sliouldn'thave put that so blunt- 
ly. The next time I get my teeth 
cleaned I niiglit get a shiny 
instrument down my throat.) 
Oh, well — Ho Hum — most 
of the hygiene girls arc engaged 
anyway! And as far as a coed 
dress code goes — T like sliort 
Madras skirts. 

See what I mean? That low 
ebb just keeps getting lower.

Room At The Top Of The Stairs 

280 Forlorn Jones' 

I had intended to write a 
lyrical dissertation in iambic 
catastrophe, somewhat in the 
Spencerian manner, hut I have 
been directly told to extol the 
virtues or, more cojTectly the 
lack oi them, concerning the 
dashing hero of the movie, 
"Tom Jones" in exactly 280 
words, counting all the "if," 
"ands," and "buts," but not the 

"Tom Jones" is a rai-e treat, 
so imaginative, vivid and, above 
all, adult. From a superb cast 
of seasoned, superbly-directed 
actors, excellent and original 
camera work and sets, and a 
highly lusf;y and provocative 
story, a wildly amusing film has 
emerged. Albert Finney as Tom 
Jones portrays a gentleman of 
questionable parentage (how 
much easier it would be if I 
could use that Anglo-Saxon ad- 
jective that says it so well 

without wasting words) who 
quenches his voracious appetites 
for adventure with leal gusto. 
His education is seen in a series 
of escapades climaxed with still 
shots and a narrator describing 
further action so the audience 
is not unduly embarassed but 
rattier delighted by the narra- 
tor's timely and witty obsei'va- 
tions romping thm a sci-ies of 
entanglements and boudoirs un- 
til he has investigated all ends 
of his background. Happily the 
hero gets his due, though not 
until the audience is thoroughly 
satisfied and exhausted from 
the pleasure of his company. 

I suggest this movie for those 
who have robust tastes, as this 
is not for the squeamish. "Tom 
Jones" is a masterpiece not to 
be missed. 

My 280 words are finished, but 
before I go I've got something 
to say , . ■ sorry no space,.. 



Editors Discuss Sports Problems 

By Don Gilchrest 
Sports Editor 

190 Mile Per Hour Ferrari 

At Upcoming Sebring Road Race 

While attending the recent Florida Junior College 
Press Association Convention, this editor spoke to many 
other sports editors from the junior colleges repre- 
sented. All the delegates, together, discussed many 
vai-ying and interesting aspects of "the sports "re- 

Different points of view were debated on the 
complete coverage of the intramural progi-am. One 
suggestion was that each team would elect representa- 
tives to forward all pertinent information on the activity 
to the sports staff. 

I think one point which was discussed and agreed 
upon was that each paper get together with a 
representative of the intramural team and ask for 
complete cooperation. 

All the editors were in favor of having one person 
cover certain activities. This part of the program would 
be feasible only if the staff had enough reporters. As 
it now stands, the sports staff consists of this writer, 
and two other hard workers, Jim Dickson and Judy 
Canipe. However, the 'Comber is always looking for 
diligent laborers to help hi the "salt mine". Any 
''spelunkers" reading this will be welcome.

Not only is the starting grid

What Is SGA Doing? 


Associate Editor 

The accusation by some tliat 'Comber reporters 
have not been checldng into both sides of the SGA 
.story is as one-sided as they accuse us of being. Certain 
people were appraoched for statements, but refused 
to issue any information. At one time we were accused 
of "barging in" on a private meeting. 

The lack of familiarity with the constitution by some 
of the Executive Council has been the cause of much 
ol the lack of communication. 

According to the constitution, "The notice of 
meetings shall be posted on the bulletin board at least 
two days in advance; however, in the case of the 
lOxecutive Council, members may be notified individu- 

To my knowledge, such notices have never been 
posted. Who is' the posted notice for, if not for tlie 
Council? If notification of the Council pertains to called 
meetings only, then this should be slated more clearly 
in the Constitution. Otherwise, the time limit is not 
lifted in tlie case of individual contact. Perhaps a good 
project for the SGA would be to study the constitution 
and revise it, so that there would be no more viola- 

It also appears that many of the Executive Council 
members felt that they could rest on their laurels after 
the elections. Poor attendance at meetings, lack of 
interest and cooperation, and failure to complete 
projects have produced criticism rather than results. 
riiis reporter followed Bruce Ammerman, former SGA 
President, as he worked on the picnic area. He met 
with little else but apathy, both from the Executive 
Council and the Student Body. 

A point in question about the constitution is, "What 
procedure is being used in conducting meetings and 
who is the final authority on said procedure?" The 
haphazard way meetings are conducted can be remedied 
by electing a Parliamentarian who would be responsible 
for learning a specific parliamentary procedure, wheth- 
er it be Roberts' or Sturgess'. 

I am only criticizing, not trying to destroy, what 
can be a veiy good Student Government Association. 
Each memer of the Council needs to sit down and 
evaluate what he has done and what he has contributed, 
then constructively criticize the organization as a 

A better and more interested Student Government 
Executive Council might lead to a more interested 
Student Body.

IBM Scheduling ... 20 Years Too Soon; 
Administration Undecided On Matter

Controversy reigned among 
the administration when they 
were confronted by this reporter 
as to the possibility of IBM 
scheduling for the fall term this 

"Oh, I think we'll have it by 
the fall," said Paul W. Allison, 
Dean of Instruction. 

"Well, I don't know much 
about it," spoke Mr. Bishop,

Wliai is this IBM scheduling 
ana iiow will it work? The 
answer is not definite now, for 
the program is in the 
plannuig stage;but consensus of 
opinion presently siiows that if 
ihe proposed program is 
adopted the student will have 
no choice of instructor and little 
choice ot tnne when registering 
for classes.

who smoked a pipe and pre- 
ferred to remain anonymous for 
when I asked his name he 
wouldn't give it— just said to 
call him Mr. IBM— so I am. 

Mr. IBM told me the program 
was being used elsewhere and 
with our increased enrollment 
it was almost necessai-y. He 
said it would save all the work 
and bother which faculty and 
administration go through dur- 
ing registration. 

I asked Mr. IBM if he thought 
it was a good idea to take the 
students choice of mstructorand 
time away from him. He said 

students would have some 
choice of time. If the student 
worked in the afternoon he 
would say so and IF POSSIBLE 
the machine wouldn't schedule 
him at that time. He asked me 
why students should be able to 
choose their instructors. 

When visiting Dean Glynn's 
office I found he had been told 
very little if anything about it. 
"Oh, no, we won't do that," he 
said when I explained. 

In the main office I stopped 
to see Mr. Bishop. He seemed 
to think it strange that I was 
curious when tlie program was

Marterie Appears At Ball; 
Band Aware Of 'Problem' 


Associate Editor 
"We're trying to bring back 
the big band soimd," hunipet- 
er Ralph Marterie explained, 
"but can fmd few engagements 
except at colleges and private 
parties. Another difficulty is 
finding musicians who want to

he wants to stay home," Marte- 
rie said. 
The dapper musician also 
clarified the "on again-of 
again" scheduled dance at 
Whitehall by verifying that he 
was not disbanding, but that 
he had received the contracts 
for his signature so late that 
the date almost conflicted 
with a previous engagement, 
and that he was aware of the 
problem uivolved in the con- 


Marterie's orchestra has just 
finisiied a torn- through the

Iowa State, Iowa City, Illinois 
and Cedar Rapidg Colleges, and 
a five week engagement at the 
Celebrity Boom in Chicago. He 
will return to Florida in June 
to work on the Uners traveling 
to the Bahamas. 

The 13-piece orchestra has 45 
albums on the market. The 
latest to appear, "Fabulous 
50's," includes 50 songs on Unit-

a possibility that an appearance

BEACHCOMBER, Friday, February 21, 1964 Page 3 

A Philosophy . . . 

Before this issue of the Beachcomber "hit the 
stands" the editorial staff knew it would be a 
controversialissue. There will be comments, discussion, 
and, indeed, 'cussin. Letitbeknown-inblackand white- 
that the Beachcomber will continue to lash out at 
controversial subjects in the best interest of the student 
body. We are not pulling any strings, picking any bones. 
We, to the best of our ability, wiU report all the facts 
and, with sound judgment and good taste, will 
editorialize-stating opinions that we feel will enlighten 
every student and, perhaps, invoke student reaction. 

The Beachcomber is not, and will not become in 
1964, a "glorified bulletin." The 'Comber is a powerful 
voice and will be heard.

PBJC— a student government 
termed by many experienced 
students and faculty members 
IS tlic best at Palm Beach JC 
in yeai-s. Bruce is a perfection- 
st. however, and very conscien- 
tious toward his work. He didn't 
run for President merely to 
"make his record look good". 
He ran because he felt he could 
make PBJC a better place to 
study and enjoy college life. 

Today Bruce does not sit 
behind the President's desk in 
the SGA office. . .he has re- 

"I can't help feeling that 
people who run for office often 
become disillusioned," Bruce 
said. "They run. . .^et elected. 
. .and proceed to sit back on 
tlieir glory and do nothing for 
the school that they represent 
pnd promised so much to during 
campaigning. ' Jue Caudill, act- 
ing President, seems to be a 
"pet-peeve" of Ammerman's. 
Bruce took a drag on a cigar- 
ette. "Caudill is lackadaisical. 
... I have no confidence in his 
ability. . .Joe is a weak person 
and will always go through life 
iib such." Bruce lit another 
cigarette, his coffee was gone, 
mine was cold . Bmce went 
on. . .-'The clothing drive was 
a typical Caudill failure. I did 
more work on the project in two 
hours than he did m days." 
Needless to say Ammerman- 
does not want to see CaudUl 
appointed the ne.\t President. I 
asked him who he would like 
to see take over the vacant 
office. "Frank Stillo would 
be perfect." Bruce stated. "He's 
one guy you can walk up to 
on canipus— ask for help— and 
he'll help you." Stillo is a 
Freshman and former student 
body prexy at Lake Worth High 
School last yeai-. Beachcomber 
reporters learned that StUlo has 
been approached concerning an 
appointment to the office, but 
he is undecided. He is looking 
forward, instead, to the upcom- 
mg Spring elections for next 
year's office. 

There are two advisers to 

SGA and it is a problem. "Mr. 
Dampier signs all the forms and 
I directly consult him on consti- 
tutional conflicts and decisions. 
.Vt the fii'st of the year I 
suggested that Dampier be 
consulted by me on certain 
situations and Mrs. Peed the 
otlier adviser could handle Sec- 
retary and Treasurer problems 
... it has never worked out that 
way." "A student govermnent 
association is as strong as its 
ad\-isers unless the student per- 
sonnel is exceptional," Bruce 
added. The recent Valentine 
Dance "mess" was an example 
of a cross-up in delegation of 
power in the total organization. 
Mrs. Peed and Caudill were 
hirmg a local band while, at 
the same time, Ammerman and 
Dampier were saving the Mar- 
terie band. All four individuals 
were acting in the best interest 
of all; it was merely a break 
down in communications. 

Our cigarettes were gone now 
. . . the lounge was nearly empty 
at this later afternoon hour. 
Ammerman arose to leave our 
conversation. "I had great coop- 
eration from the faculty. I got 
some things done with a mini- 
mum amount of help from the 
Executive Council. You know, I 
work forty hours a week in a 
mental hospital and the patients 
never cooperate. You can imag- 
ine how I felt when I sat m 
the SGA office and experienced 
the same problems." 

Bruce left the lounge. Some- 
one put a dime m the iuke box 
and the Beatles blared out, 
"Who will take the place of 
Bruce Ammerman?"

Busiest Club On Campus; 
Circle K Heads For Tampa 

Circle K in keeping with its 
tradition is as busy as ever 
working and planning its many 
sei-vice projects. 

Biggest project at present is 
the building of a sidewalk at 
tlie southwest corner of the 
social science wing. Last week 
the walk was a black strip of 
pavement; this week its a strip 
of white sand; next week it will 
be a complete concrete side- 

While working on the sidewalk 
the boys are also building a 
ramp to make access to the 
classrooms easier for wheel- 
chair students. It will be located 
at the northeast corner of the 
Social Science building. 

Saturday the Circle K boys 
finished tabulating the Smoking 
Data Sheets which students 
filled out at registration. 

As a community project the 
Circle K helped sell tickets to 
the County Fair. 

During the Christmas Holi- 
days they helped the Soutlisidc 
Kiwanis plant flowers around 
the Dental Hygiene building. 

In the mimediate future, Cir- 
cle K intends to work in the 
County Home where they will 
tutor the boys. 

Phil Sorenson has been 
clecteu treasurer to fill the 
place of the outgoing JackEnos, 
and Marc Weisman was chosen 
secretary to fill the vacancy left 
by the graduated Jay Duman. 

March 5, 6, and 7, eight 
members of the boys service 
club will attend the Circle K 
convention in Tampa. Host 
school will be the University of 
South Florida. "We will enter 
every possible contest and carry 
back every possible award," 
said Ron Morrison, president. 
The PBJC club will be running 
Phil Sorenson for Lieutenant

I BM (Con't. trom Page 1) 

thought it woidd be quite some- 
time before the program would 
be used. As I talked with him, 
Dean Allison joined us. 

Dean Allison said he believed 
our increased enrollment mer- 
ited the program and we would 
have it Uiis year. He didn't feel 
it important that the student 
would lose his right to choice 
of instructor. 

Mr. Bishop said the program 
had to be accepted by the 
administration, school officials 
and faculty before it became 
permanent and he felt it would 
be 'a while' before a decision 
was made. 

Aie these genilemen who are 
so deiermineu to adopt ihe 
program aware ol our school's 
philosophy? The phiiosopiiy as 
written in our student hand- 
books says that PBJC ". . . 
seeks to cari-y on a program 
that will insure tiie maximum 
in personal educational service 
10 the individual student." How 
can our administration schedule 
the students as a massive group 
and still claim they are giving 
personal service? 

No one can deny our enroll- 
ment is increasing, but neitlier 
can they deny that the Universi- 
ty of Florida and Florida State 
are much larger than PBJC can 
hope to be for many years. 
These larger institutions have 
not deemed it necessary to 
throw out the individual student 
and engage in an IBM schedul- 
hig program, why should we? 

As individuals with indiviauai 
goals and ambitions, we need 
the right to select the best 
instructors for our personal pur- 
poses. A biology major wants 
a biology instructor who goes 
into much detail and empha- 
sizes the learning of biological 
terms. The engineering major 
needs an instructor who empha- 
sizes overall learning instead of 
minute details. Some students 
find it easier to absorb material 
from a man teacher: others 
prefer women. Some English 
teachers stress grammar, otli- 
ers stress composition. The in- 
dividual should have the right to 
fill his personal needs. 

Perhaps I am jumping the 
gun as some administrators 
claim, but I do not think so. 
Does one wait to fight the 
construction of a ten-story build- 
ing until it's finished? Let's not 
jump into the realm of 1984-we 
are twenty years too early.

Million Dollar Extravaganza 
By Don Gilchrest 
Sports Editor 

Attention, all boxing fans! Miami Beach will be 
the showcase of the boxing world on Tuesday night. 
The event is the Heavy-Weight Championship fight, 
featuring Cassius Clay and Sonny Listen. 

Clay, the poet-laureate of the fight world, is a young 
fighter who needs to be taught a lesson in the worst 

Cassius, an arrogant talker, has had no respect 
for his elders for quite sometime. In so many words 
Clay has said that "he will use Liston as a mop." 

The challenger reminds this editor of another yoting 
heavy-weight champ of a year ago, Floyd Patterson. 
Clay, like Patterson, has never met a decent fighter. 
Do you recall the first and second Liston-Patterson 
fights".' If you do not recall them, Liston won both 
of the fights by first round knockouts. 

Liston was quite the controversial fighter, being 
involved with the nation's law enforcement agencies 
on a regular basis. Since the dethroning of Patterson, 
Liston has taken the sport of boxing seriously. 

The champ reminds many people of another 
ex-heavyweight champ. Rocky Marciano. Both individu- 
als have the 'power punch' which can make you see 
the stars quite early. 

The fight should be a razzle-dazzle affair. Each 
of the fighters pack authoiity in their gloves. Clay 
has to be considered the lesser of the two evils in 
this category. Liston hits hke a stick of dynamite— one 
punch and yoti're out cold. 

Many people think that Clay will be the new World's 
Heavyweight Champion. The opinions range from the 
'common every day' fight fan to Eddie Machen, a top 
heavyweight contender. This editor is going to go out 
on the limb and try his luck predicting the winner and 
the round. My prediction is that Liston will win in 
the second round by a knockout and reign supreme.

basketball game. They defeated 
the Slopshots by a score of 44-

The second half, however, saw 
the Fugitives, behind the 1-2

The Slopshots could only man-

Should The 'Class System ' Be A boUshedAt PBJC? 

Mrs. Robert Lenz, freshman, 
Palm Beach. 

"It is difficult to distinguish 
freshmen from sophomores be- 
cause many people come here 
and take only a few hours of 
study. I can understand a lack 
of enthusiasm for class partici- 
pation since many students do 
not live on campus and conse- 
quently do not have the feeling 
of college life as experienced in 
most four year institutions." 

Photos by Bob Bloodworth 

Tom Vlasak, freshman, K i v i- 
era Beach. 

"I think the class system is 
O.K., because we need some 
sort of breakdown in order to 
identify students. The only trou- 
ble is there is no support for 
class officers.

Should we abolish the Freshman 
- Sophomore Class system as we 
have it now at PBJC? Our 
roving Feature Editor tried to 
get the reactions of the average 
students around the lounge dur- 
ing the break. 

After all, there seems to be 
no cooperation with the elected 
class officers, poor attendance 
at class meetings, and a dis- 
tui-bing lack of enthusiasm to- 
ward all projects and ideas. 

Various things must be con- 
sidered: This is only a two- 
year institution. All students 
must commute in some way to 
the campus. The large distribu- 
tion of ages among the students 
and their purposes here also 
nuist be taken at theh- full val- 

The solution? 

Sandra Stoddard, sophomore, 

Delray Beach. 

"I think the class system 
should be continued. It is a 
preparatory program for the 
upper division colleges and we 
need a delineation between 
freshmen and sophomores the 
same as we do between juniors 
and seniors."

Defeats Two Applicants; 
Veep Post Now Open 

LAKE WORTH - Frank Stillo was voted Student 
Government president by the Executive Council yester- 

Stillo, 19-year-old freshman pre-law major at PBJC, 
defeated applicants Joe Caudill and Mike Brown. 

Today marks Stillo' s first day in office — an office 
left vacant for 16 days by the sudden resignation of 
Bruce Ammerman. 

Joe Caudill resigned from his position of SGA 
vice-president to run for the presidential post. Since 
Caudill was defeated, the vice-presidential post is now 
open for applications, the Executive Council announced 

With the exception of the vice presidential post 
the Executive Council has now filled all vacant offices.

president and Ron Simpson as sophomore vice presi- 

Stillo Calls For SGA Action; 
Reveals New Five-Point Plan 


Associate Editor 

"The major change in the 
new constitution is the forma- 
tion of the Senate. It is mod- 
eled as much after the U.S. 
Senate as possible. Twelve 
senators will be elected from 
eacli class and one each from 
the I&R board, the publica- 
tions boai-d, and the ISCC. We 
hope this will give more voice 
to the independent in the 
Student Government," stated 
Frank Stillo. Stillo was ap- 
pointed by the SGA Executive 
Council to fill the SGA presi- 
dential post left vacant by the 
resignation of Bruce Ammer-

plan to further the goals of 
SGA: (1) organization(2) com-

image of SGA (4) opening

Born in Canton, Ohio, Frank 
graduated from Lake Worth 
High School in 1963. At Lake 
Worth he was president of the 
Sophomore and Junior Classes 
and president of the student 
body in his senior year. He 
was vice president of Junior 
Civitans and a member of the 
Glee Club. 

Stillo, a freshman pre-law 
major at PBJC is a member 
of the board of directore of 
Circle K, a member of the 
United Party, and has sensed 
on several SGA committees. 
He is one of the authors of 
the new SGA constitution. 


Congratulations to Frank StiUo — PBJC's newly 
appointed SGA president. 

Stillo is a man capable of leading the students of 
PBJC; a man who has the respect and confidence of 
the Executive Council. 

Stillo steps into a "hot box" position. He is faced 
with numerous problems. He must endeavour to "inject" 
a new image of SGA into the students of PBJC. Today 
the SGA image is bad. Last year's "merry-go-round" 
of presidents was a farce, and this year's resignation 
of Bruce Ammennan added to the questionable image. 

Stillo will now take his turn. A great responsibility 
rests on his shoulders. We do not envy the task that 
is before him, but the(Beachcomber)wilI support Frank 
Stillo to every possible extent.

Councii 'Come Back^ 

The Executive Council of SGA is making a 
"comeback." After floundering in tlie confusing after- 
math of Bruce Ammerman's resignation, the Council 
is making a concentrated effort to revise the constitu- 
tion. They made a wise choice in naming Frank Stillo 
as president. They have filled the vacant offices of 
sophomore president and vice president with two 
capable individuals — Duke Barwick and Ron Simpson 

The Student Government Association of Palm Beach 
JC is back on the road to a fruitful year. It is, indeed, 
on the way to success. Perhaps 1964 will mark the 
year that SGA became a SGA. 


Letters to the Editor 


We, the Executive Council of 
the Student Government Associ- 
ation, would like to take this 
opportunity to express our feel- 
ings on the happenings of the 
past two weeks. The Student 
Government has been left in a 
period of great turmoil and 
transition due to the resignation 
of Bruce Ammerman. The Ex- 
ecutive Council may not always 
have agreed with our past presi- 
dent, but we always respected 

The Executive Council is now 
faced with solving many prob- 
lems. It is our opinion that the 
Beachcomber has not presented 
aU sides of our problems accu- 
rately. We have always been 
faced with problems and we 
always will. However, we are 
STILL here to face them and 
will solve them with the best 
interest of the Student Body in 
mind. We are only a group of 
12 individuals. 

We urge that the student 
body of Palm Beach Junior 
College get behind the new and 
old officers to accomplish all 
that must be done for the 
remainder of the school year. 

Even the Beachcomber can 
help us — if they WANT to!!

To The Editor: 

On February 10., the SGA 
President called together mem- 
bers of the Executive Council 
and explained that the Ralph 
Marterie Orchestra had re- 
turned their retainer check for 
the Valentine Dance on Febru- 
ary 14. We all tried to find a 
way to solve this problem. I was 
delegated by the President and 
Council members to secure the 
best band in the area, so that 
the dance need not be cancelled. 
After the others left, I worked 
several hours before I was ablt^, 
to contact all concerned and 
secure a commitment from the 
Paul Chaffin Band. 

I accepted the responsibility 
according to the agreement 
made at the meeting. If this 
arrangement had been made 
between Bruce and me alone, 
there could have been a misun- 
derstanding. However, all others 
present participated in the plans 
and confirm the matter. Bruce 
Ammerman, without consulting 
members of the Council again, 
or letting me know, decided to 
try again to get the Marterie 

Facing criticism for acting so 
independently, Bruce wanted to 
blame someone else. He decided 
to escape from the problems of 
SGA by resigning; yet he con- 
tinues as a self-appointed au- 
thority, throwing stones at the 
present administration. 

I resent the published abuse 
and degrading remarks by 
Bruce, and the Beachcomber 
editor's failure to learn the 
trath of the happening. Howev- 
er, I have decided not to let 
this interfere in any way, and 
to serve SGA and Palm Beach 
Junior College to the best of my 
ability. DO I NEED TO DE- 

Although Bruce does not ap- 
preciate the time and work on 
the clothing drive, the Salvation 
Army, to whom I took the 
clothes for distribution to needy 
families, sent me the following 

January 24, 1964 
Dear Mr. Caudill, 

Will you please thank those 
responsible for the very nice 
clothing drive you had at Christ- 
mas time? 

It is through fi-iends like you 
that the Salvation Army is able 
to carry on. Thanks again and 
May God Bless You. 

Otis Street, Major 
The Salvation Army 

Let's look at the record which 
will reveal the truth about "no 
cooperation." One of the prime 
duties of the SGA is budgeting 
the funds which full-time stu- 
dents pay at the beginning of 
the semester. The biggest 
money-spendmg activity this 
year was NOT approved by the 
Executive Council. A sum of 
nearly $2,100.00 was spent, with 
Bruce Ammerman making the 
decision ON HIS OWN. COOP- 
DIRECTION. Can we aD p u 1 1 
together and try to do whatever 
is best? 

Bmce severely criticizes the 
entire Executive Council for 
lack of cooperation. Bruce liked 
to make all decisions by him-

'Just Killing Time ' 

By Ron Johnson 

Lai ly Henderson, freshman. One might ask then, "Why do 

Boynton Beach. these people attend PBJC if 

"I never paid much attention they are so apathetic toward 

to the class system. I am just it?" The answer is simple and 

killing time here." three-fold. 

1. They don't have the money 
to go away to a big school. ' 

2. They didn't have the high 
school grades to get into a biff 

3. They flunked out of a blj? 
school and find it difficult to 
be accepted any place else 
except at a JC. 

A fourth reason could be that 
one just wanted to start out at 
a JC and pace himself into ;i 
big school. After all, he can oal 
Mommy's cooking and use 
Daddy's car just a few more 

So we find most of the stu- 
dents here are actually 
"forced" to attend PBJC, Many 
students are merely "killing 
time." They are waiting until 
they can save enough money to 
go away to school, and they are 
wailing to bolster their sagging 
grade point averages. 

The image of PBJC may 
never be that of a two-year- 
College College students 8 true 
college students — do not enroll 
in an upper division institution 
merely to "kill time." 

It's such a pity that so many 
of these 'students' are actually 
cluttering up our class-roonif-' 
just "killing lime." 

It is no wonder that oui 
student body is so apathetic 
toward campus activities, etc. 
. . .to some of our students, 
PBJC is just a slop-over before 
heading for bigger and bettor 

As far as the Boynton Beach 
freshman goes, I hope he gets 
drafted so he can "kill time" 
peeling spuds in some remote 
Army base in the Arkansas 

He has no business in col- 

Palm Beach JC, to me, is a 
college and has every right to 
be called just that. The caliber 
of instruction in our classrooms 
is no better and no worse than 
one would find at some of 
Florida's four year institutions. 
The physical plant is excellent 
comparing with any JC in the 
state or, for that matter, the 

Call this edition of the Cellar 
Door 'bitter' if you wish. I just 
don't like to see people "just 
killing time" when they go to 
the same school that I go to. 

"I am just killing tune here." 
This amusingly blunt statement 
will go down in my books as 
one of the classic statements of 
the year on our campus. It is 
not news that there are many, 
perhaps hundreds, of students 
on this campus who feel the 
way the bored freshman from 
Boynton Beach. To see the 
naked truth in black and white, 
however, brought chuckles from 
many 'Comber' readers last 

The statement is classic, be- 
cause it is so true. 

Student apathy overwhelms 
the atmosphere at "Congi-ess 
Tech." The current rumblings 
in the SGA mean nothing to the 
greater percentage of students 
here. The SGA Executive Coun- 
cil could jump off the second 
floor of the Social Science build- 
ing and hardly anyone would 
care. The Beachcomber office 
could burn down and perhaps 
the only reaction would be a 
momentai-y outburst of applause 
or a sign of relief; or maybe 
a few cheers if the editor were 
caught in the blaze. . .found the 
next day with his fingers patri- 
otically clutching the keys of a 
charred typewriter. 

Psychologically speaking 
PBJC, like other junior colleges, 
is more like a high school — 
the eleventh and twelfth grades 
—than a college. Students who 
attend classes here accept the 
JC as a so-called "glorified high 
school" and therefore deplore 
being identified with it. After 
all, who wants to be a "glorified 
high schooler" when, by all 
rights, he should be known as 
a college student? 

It is ironic to note at this 
point, however, that it is this 
prevalent PBJC attitude that 
"makes" and, uideed, "builds" 
our school into a so-called "glo- 
rified high school." 

Forum Hears Duncan; 
^Education Is Indispendsable' 

"Educating a Man In Democ-

Patriotism" was the topic of a 
speech given by Mr. Watson B

Duncan stated that education 
is the indispensable means by 
which democracy serves its 
ends and determmed its prog- 

"We must educate our people 
in democracy. This cannot be 
done by imitating the proce- 
dures of totalitarian states: cen- 
sorship," stated Duncan. "We 
must have an intelligent com- 
prehension of the ideas and 
ideals that underlie our Ameri- 
can democracy."

'Old Fashioned System' Out 
Year Round Operation In Aug. 


•Comber Staff 

For the next scholastic year, 
a "year 'round operation" is 
planned. The system was de- 
vised to correspond with the 
commencement dates of the 
universities which are on tri- 
mester. The new operation will 

definitely have the same 
amount of instruction time as 
the regular, old-fashioned two 
semester system which began in 
September and endea in June. 

The new way, in contrast, 
launches its pepped-up program 
August 26 (registration — Au- 
gust 21), the Fall Term ending 
December 18. The Winter Term 

begins January 7 and ends April 
23. These two terms, Fall and 
Winter, will be the equivalent 
of the Fall and Spring Semes- 
ters under the old system. The 
sophomore students who begin 
August 26 can be graduated in 

In the Spring Term beginning 
May 3, there will be two six- 
week sessions ending Jtily 27th. 
Twelve hours of academic work 
can be accumulated during the 

Classes will run for one full 
hour, beginning at 7:30 am. The 
Fall Term will have the regular 
holidays of Labor Day and 
Thanksgiving. There will be a 
break between the Fall and 

Winter Terms which the faculty 
has classified, for want of a 
better name, "The Twilight 

The Winter Term will have 
no holidays, the regular Easter 
vacation being cut out. To make 
up the time, some extra activit- 
ies such as field trips may be 
scheduled for Saturdays. 

There are many pros and cons 
to the issue, among them: pro 

— a student paying his way 
through school is able to work 
during the season (January- 
April), gaining the advantage of 
more job opportunity; con 

— of course, is the few and 
far between holidays and those 
daybreak hours. 

VOL. XXIV, No. 14 


MARCH 6, 1964 

Polls Open Tuesday 

PBJC students go to the polls 
next Tuesday to accept or reject 
the newly-revised constitution. 

The constitution, termed "out 
moded" by Student Government 
officials was revised by mem- 
bers of the Executive Council 
of SGA. 

The council decided to revise 
the constitution when numerous 
problems were encountered fol- 
lowing the resignation of Bruce 

Ammerman from the presiden- 
tial post of SGA. 

Jim Prevost, SGA parliamen- 
tarian, was a leadhig figure hi 
the revision. Working closely 
with Prevost was Pam Dickey, 
SGA treasurer, Jean Vellcca, 
Sophomwe secretary. 

The iwUs will open at 8:30 
a.m. and close at 3-.30 p.m. 

The new constitution is 
printed on page five 

Constitution On Ballot; PBJC Debaters 

Defeat UOfF 

Although the Palm Beach Jun- 
ior College debate team won no 
trophies at the Florida State 
University Invitational tourna- 
ment last weekend, it did defeat 
a strong University of Florida 
team in a Saturday morning 
round of conference-style de- 

Negative debaters Mary Ann 
Grieser and Jim Lynch humbled 
the Florida University affirma- 
tives with a brilliant defense of 
the status quo. Their opponents 
had argued that federal aid to 
higher education is necessary 
because at the present time 
100,000 to 1(50,000 high school 
graduates are financially unable 
to go to college. The Palm 
Beach negatives proved that 
such round number statistics 
are loose and unreliable and 
that they do not actually reveal 
a lack of student opportunity. 
It was an effective coup — one 
which turned the tables on the 
Florida team and crushed its 
case. The victory brought de- 
serving credit to the local de- 
baters, who had worked especia- 
lly hard for this tournament. 

Other highlights of the tourna- 
ment included affirmative vic- 
tories by Howard Freeman and 
Joan Gossett over Campbell 
College and Reinhart College 
and negative decisions over 
Campbell College and St. Pe- 
tersburg Junior College. 

The tournament saw all Flori- 
da junior colleges fail in their 
attempts to win debate awards. 
Tournament honors went to San 
Angelo College of Texas, the 
University of Alabama and Em- 
ory University.

Alan French to the Vice presi- 
dential post of the Student Gov- 
ernment Association Monday. 

French defeated Chris Greer, 
Gary Smigeal and .Jim Wacks- 

The vice presidential position

vacancy on the executive coun- 
cil. All twelve seats are filled- 

the first time since the first 
isemester ended in January.

Comber Editorial Leading The Way On Campus 

Vote For Constitution 

"I feel the constitution is the largest legislation 
this school has ever seen. It wiU give better representa- 
tion to the students in SGA affairs," said Jim Prevost, 
SGA parliamentarian. 

Students will vote on the new SGA constitution on 
Tuesday, March 10. 

The constitution is very well written and clarifies 
most of the discrepancies in the old constitution. 

Should the president resign, there is no doubt now 
that the vice president wUl fiU the office of president 
until the next school election. 

The most important step in better student represen- 
tation is the creation of the Student Senate. Twelve 
senators from each class and one each from the I 
& R board, the ISCC, and the publications board 
(Beachcomber, GaUeon, Media) will be elected to fill 
a total of 27 seats. (One thing, however, could be 
clarified — how many of the class representatives will 
be social club members and how many will be 
independents.) This body has the power to make all 
laws necessary for carrying out powers vested by the 

A specific parliamentary procedure — "ROBERTS' 
RULES OF ORDER" — was a necessary addition to 
the constitution. A parliamentarian will be appointed 
to the Senate. Prevost is drawing up a procedure for 
the new Senate and any other organization interested 
in parliamentary procedure. 

The Beachcomber urges the student body to vote 
^OR the constitution. It gives the students better 
pportunity to take part in their Student Government 


'Ivy Leogue JC 

The reaction to the recent student governmeni 
"nunblings" has been excellent. It would be a gross 
error to brand all of PBJC's students as apathetic 
toward campus organizations and activities. 

The appointment to the presidency was a hotly 
contested "run" and the political interest in the situation 
by the "average" students on this campus was good 
and, perhaps, surprising. 

PBJC's strength lies in the vestiges of its campus 
organizations and activities. Spirit for our school has 
to be mustered up — it is not spontaneous as it is 
m some Florida junior colleges that have intercollegiate 

We do not think it would be a mis-nomer to label 
Palm Beach Junior College as the "Ivy League Junior 
College". We are the oldest junior college with an 
established reputation — a respected reputation. 

We have our "time killers" but, indeed, we have 
a great number of students that toil everyday to make 
PBJC one of the top junior colleges in the nation.

Frank Stillo 'Honored'; 
Invites Student Interest 

To: The Administration, Staff, and Student Body of 
Palm Beach Junior College. 

From: Frank Stillo, President of the Student Govern- 
ment Association. 

I welcome and am honored by my appointment 
to the presidency of the Student Government Associa- 
tion, by the Executive Council at their regular meeting 
on February 27th. 

Student Government Association is the organization 
representing the student body of Palm Beach Junior 
College. As such it must represent all the students 
on the campus. It is my intention to encourage broader 
representation than has heretofore existed. 

If at any tune you wish to attend our regular 
meetings, a cordial welcome is extended to you. In 
addition, please feel free to offer any suggestions that 
would help function in a more efficient manner. 

During the past few weeks the Student Government 
Association has been forced to examine itself. This was 
a trying but also rewarding experience in that it showed 
us the need for improvement in our Student Government 
Association, and especially in our Constitution. For some 
time past interested students have combined their 
efforts in rewriting the Student Government Association 
Constitution which appears in this issue of the Beach- 
comber for careful student readmg. The student body 
will be asked to vote on accepting the Constitution 
to replace the one in the Student Handbook. I urge 
you to read carefully and to accept this Constitution 
which has been constructed to give the student better 

Respectfully yours, 

Frank StUlo

To the Editor: 

This is just another letter to 
inform the readers of the social 
hall that is called our school 
library It isn't a place of study 
now but a place to store books 
and to converse with friends. 

I went out to read a required 
book, which was on two hour 
reserve, and after thirty min- 
utes of trying to concentrate 
amidst the noise, I gave up in 
despair. Thinking it would be 
less noisy at night, 1 returned 
only to find the book 1 needed 
had been checked out at 3:00 
p.m. overnight. This was proba- 
bly an hone-st mistake on the 
part of the one who let it get 
out, but I thought when we are 
told a book is not to leave the 
library, it should be handled as 

I believe the majority of the 
students would welcome faculty 
intervention in the library to 
weed out the noise makers and 
return this to a place of quiet 
study once more. By faculty 
intei-vention, I mean possible 
loss of library privileges and, 
or, fines to those guilty of 
repeated noisemaking.

Smoking Survey Revealed; 
574 Smokers On Campus 

The non-smokers out number 
the smokers at PBJC according 
to the recently compiled Smok- 
ing Survey which was taken at 
Spring Registration. 

The survey, written by Mr. 
James King and Mr. Roy Bell, 
revealed that 574 students 
smoke and 958 do not smoke. 

Perhaps the most .startling 
aspect of the survey was the 
fact that 219 smokers smoke one 
pack or over a day compared 
to 142 students that smoke less 
than a .half pack a day. 163 
smoke a half ^ack or more per 
day .24 students smoke two 
packs or over a day. 

The majority of students 

started smoking at the age of 

It seems that since 1,248 stu- 
dents felt that smoking is a 
positive link to the formation of 
lung cancer 323 have tried to 
quit the habit. 184 students have 
never tried to quit. 

1,307 students felt that smok- 
ing injures one's health opposed 
to 58 negative answers. 

The most one sided answer 
was "Could you quit smoking 
if you wanted to?" 429 students 
answered "yes" and only 50 
answered "no".

the foul line with seven for nine. 
Bob Tauriello, Gary Lawrence, 
and Ludwig each scored 15 for 
the winners. Del Reese led the 
losers with 19, and Larry Hen- 
derson chipped in with 10. 

69'ers Edge Redeyes 

The 69'ers, using a balanced 
scoring attack, topped the Red- 
eyes 37-36. in a game riddled 

with fouls. The 69'ers traOed 
most of the game, but finally 
got the lead, with about two 
feinutes to go, on a short jump 
shot by Mike Kosta. A total of 
29 personal fouls were called, 
and the lack of accuracy at the 
charity line by the Redeyes 
spelled the difference. Tom 
Howard led the victors with 
eight, while Kosta, Buddy 
Payne, Rich Kuney, and Chuck 
Turner added six each. Armand 
Yates led the vanquished Red- 
eyes with 14 points while Bret 
Davis chipped in with eight. 

Sansevero Leads Boilermakers 

The Boilermakers, using a 
fast break and a mild press, 
troxmced the hapless GDI 93-31. 
According to the P. E. Dept., 
this is probably the highest 
score ever recorded in men's 
I-m basketball. Louis Sansevero 
paced the winners with 52 
points. This output practically 
insures him of the individual 
scoring leadership. Jeff Lewis' 
13 points also aided the victors. 
Ray Long and Ed Holloway 
shared the scoring honors for 
losers with ten apiece. 

Blasies Win Thriller 

The Blasies, led by Jerry 
Myrick's 29 points, came from 
behind to defeat the Counts in 
the first overtime game of the 
I-m season. The winners were

half saw Len Emanuelson score

Braves Open Winter Tour 
By Don Gilchrest 

New Student Proposed Government Constitution 

"Play ball" wUl be the call 
next weekend as the Milwaukee 
Braves open their official 
Grapefruit Circuit tour. 

The Braves will play their 
home games in the plush new 
stadiimi in Westward Expansion 
west of West Palm Beach. 

The Braves this vear acquired 
four new faces — Ed Bai- 
ley, Felipe Alou, i Ernie Bow- 
man and Billy Hoeft — in a 
trade with San Francisco Gi- 

i'he major acquisition of tne 
trade was Alou, who is flanked 
in the outfield by Lee Maye and 
Henry Aaron. These three 
should give the Braves one of 
the best outfields in the major 

Pitching will be the mainstay 
of the tribe with the old reliable 
Warren Spahn, who seems to 
get better as he ages. Other top 
flight pitchers in the reservation 
are Dennis LeMaster, Bob 
Sadowski and Tony Cloninger. 

Behind the plate, the men 

from Milwaukee will have three 
capable receivers. In addition to 
Bailey, the Braves have Gene 
Ohver and Joe Torre possibly 
the best catcher in baseball. 

The infield is the big question 
mark in the Braves' training 
camp. The questions to be an- 
swered are: Will Eddie Mat- 
thews have a., good year? Can 
Frank "TBolUng make a come- 
back after a year of injuries? 
The biggest problem may be 
finding a good hitting firstsack- 

The Braves will face 11 major 
league teams. The biggest turn- 
out for the exhibition season will 
be on Sunday, March 22, when 
the Braves meet the World's 
Champion Los Angeles Dodgers. 
Other Milwaukee opponents that 
will play here are the Houston 
Colt 45's, Detroit Tigers, and 
■nine other teams. 

The fever of the spring train- 
uig gets into high gear tomor- 
row with a parade in West Palm 
Beach honoring the Braves.

One of the most confusing 
calls in basketball is that of a

that the ball has to be touched

happen the opposing team can

Due to the chronic malfunc- 
tioning of the college's clocks, 
the sundial in the Science build-

It is hoped that once the idea 
is perfected, the inventor, Terry 
Telltime, might interest IBM in 
the new idea. Terry said, when 
the subject of cloudy weather 
was brought up, "They are 
always trying to find flaws with 
my ideas. They laughed at 
Herman Hairbrain, also." Her- 
man, it will be remembered, 
invented the first unsuccessful 

Even if Terry succeeds with 
his "operation sundial," PBJC 
students can still look forward 
to times when they will not 
know the time. For instance: 
if a clock says 3 o'clock, and 
the time is 1 o'clock, no one 
will know if the clock is two 
hours fast or ten hours slow. 

Mr. Ferrel Flunkalot, a PBJC 
instructor of little renown and 
less respect, has an unusual 
cuckoo clock which he carries 
to his classes. The unusual 
aspect of this clock is that it 
sounds off at the start of each 
class by singing gleefully, 

"Whoever comes in now is 
tardy. Three tardies make a 
cut; four cuts, and Mr. Flunka- 
lot can be rid of another smart- 
aleck student." This is sung by 
the cuckoo to the tune of ON 

Let's hope the clocks are fixed

New Probationary Rules 

The probationary status of 
PBJC will be upped for the 1964 
Fall Term, Beginning next se- 
mester, students must maintain 
a higher scholastic standing or

semester hours attempted, 2.0 
or better for over 45 semester 
hours attempted, or be placed 
on probation. 

Any student on probation is

ter hours; consequently, he is 
a special student. 

To remove probation, a stu- 
dent must earn sufficient quali- 
ty points to bring his cumulative 
average up to the standard set' 
for that number of semester 

A student on probation is 
given one semester to remove 

probation. If he fails to remove 
probation in one semester, he 
will be suspended for one se- 
mester unless he earns the 
cumulative average of the 
standard set for that number of 
semester hours, or an av'erage 
of 2.0 or better on all work 
attempted in the immediate se-

following suspension will be 
placed on probation and be 
subject to all regulations per- 
taining to probation. 

A Committee on Probation

The Blasies' Intramural bas- 
ketball team was charged with 
illegal recruiting last Friday 
according to James B. King, 
Intramural Director. 

In a letter forwarded to the 
Beachcomber Monday, the team 
was charged with three illegal 

1. Using a non-student, Tim 
Rake, in three games by play- 
ing him under the name of 
Jeny Myrick. 

2. Using an ineligible medical 
waiver student, Edgar Guest, in 
at least two games by playing 
him under the names of Charles 
Smith or Jim Stewart. 

3. Using an ineligible player, 
Dwaine Kaimason, who played 
under the assumed name of Ray 

Team managers Rick E as ton 
and Edgar Guest, according to 
King, "willfully and maliciously 
recruited the ineligible play- 
ers." Team members Tom Car- 
roll, Andy Anderson, Charles 
Smith and Jim Stewart were 
aware of the illegal proceedings 

and participated in games with 
the illegal players, 

Easton and Guest offered no 
legitimate explanation other 
than than they "wanted to play 
basketball." Neither of the boys, 
according to the letter, realized 
the seriousness of the of- 

Myrick and Kaimason, ac- 
cording to the letter, were not 
aware of the illegality until 
after the offenses had occuired. 
Myrick read his name in the 
spoit section of the Beachcomb- 
er and Kaimason was told by 
Guest that he could play legal- 

The following disciplinary ac- 
tions have been taken by Mrs. 
Elisabeth Erling, physical edu- 
cation department head, and the 
I and R Board. 

1. Easton, Carroll, Anderson, 
Smith, and Stewart were placed 
on intramural suspension for the 
remainder of the Spring Semes- 
ter. Guest was already ineligi- 

2, Kaimason and Myrick were 
placed on intramural probation 
lor the remainder of the Spring 

3. Ray Boggs is no longer a 
student at Palm Beach Junior 

4. It was recommended that 
Tim Rake, a non-student, be 
placed on social probation if he 
ever does attend Palm Beach 
Junior College. 

5. The Blasies forfeit aU 
games in which these ineligible 
players participated. 

6. The Dean of Men should 
study the illegal actions and 
consider possible additional dis- 
ciplinary action. 

7. This action be made public 
by notifjing the Beachcomber. 

Dr. Wayne White, Dean of 
Men, told Beachcomber report- 
ers Monday that "no further 
action would be taken at this 

Director King stated in the 
letter that "by this action, the 
men's section hopes to discour- 
age any further attempts to 
take short cuts in the rules. 
These short cuts can only lead 
to deadends."

The right to criticize , 
weapon and privilege. 

The role of the campus newspaper is a big one. 
It must report, to the best of its ability, all the news 
to the students and faculty. 

Just as important is the responsibility of main- 
taining a steady loud voice in all campus affairs, is- 
sues, and controversies. 

Criticism by the Beachcomber editorial staff is one 
method of maintaining that "voice." The policy of the 
Beachcomber is not to criticize merely for condemna- 
tion, but for results. 

More effective, enjoyable, campus life is a primary 
goal of the Beachcomber. Editorial criticism paves the 
way towards that goal. 

'Comber editorial leading the way on campus' is 
our editorial credo ... We accept the slogan with 
respect and a responsible, open mind. 

Public Punishment 

The physical education's "shake down" of the Blasis 
Intramural basketball team for illegal actions was one 
of the most effective public punishments leveled against 
student offenders this '63-'64 school year. 

The Beachcomber hails the PE department's 
decision to publicly punish the student offenders. 

Cheaters do not belong on the campus of Palm 
Beach Junior College. They deserve public punish- 

Where and Who Are We? 

The junior college in Florida 
is constantly short of funds for 
campus beautificaUon. Certainly 
the administration of Palm 
Beach Junior College would like 
to see our campus beautified 
with the natural tropical atmos- 
phere that sets Florida aside as 
a winter wonderland. 

It is known that beautification 
plans are on the drawing board, 
but it will be awhile before the 
plans will be put into effect. 

But, what about the North 
entrance sign that has been 
lacking the words "Palm 
Beach'" of what used to be 
"Palm Beach Junior College" 
Surely PBJC has the funds to 

replace tne words. They have 
been missing for over a month 

And, what about the dilapi- 
dated, bent-over wooden sign at 
the comer of Congress and 
Lucerne? The sign hardly dig- 
nifies our campus. 

And, why are there no signs 
on our highways to inform visi- 
tors as to the location of 

PBJC is one of the foremost 
junior colleges in America. 

VVhy don't we have some 
dignified signs to show where 
our foremost junior college is 
and what we are called?

The Cellar Door 

A Boredom Breaker 

By Ron Johnson 

My roommate (his name is 
"Hooty" for some unique rea- 
son) and 1 were sitting ai'ound 
our apartment the other night. 
As the spring semester rolls on 
we have been growing accus- 
tomed to periodic depression 
periods. "This is the deadest 
place I've ever seen " seems to 
be the central theme of these 
Idle conferences. 

Lately the boredom has been 
so overwhelming I feel sort oi 
like that infamous, greasy, long- 
locked teenager who turns to- 
ward a life of vandalism to 
release pent-up emotions and, 
indeed, for something to do. 

I really don't think, however, 
that "Hoot" and I will turn to 
crime to break the boredom of 
going to a school where social 
functions just don't 'wail'. 

One of the first all-school 
dances in a long time was 
thrown by the Freshman Class 
last Friday night. As usual the 
dance had an ingenious theme. 
This time it was St. Patrick's 
Day, and some dreamer thought 
that it would be nice if everyone 
wore green. It was also prom- 
ised that the Florida Keys (the 
band) would be splendidly 
adorned with KeUy green hats. 
Just as could be expected no 
one wore green (unless it was 
quite by accident) and there 
were two green hats stuffed in 
a corner behind the band 

The dance was typical of a 
PBJC all-school affair. The evm 

was its usual stuffy temperature 
and the odor reminded me of 
those high school sock dances 
after a basketball game. The 
glai-mg gym lights cast an at- 
mosphere over the dance floor 
that reminded me of those pris- 
on movies when they shine the 
spotlight on the escaping prison- 

The whole situation adds up 
to this. All school dances held 
in a gymnasium aren't worth 
the time and effort put forth 
by enterprising dance chairmen . 
The dances are poorly attended 
(like around 10 per cent of the 
student body shows up). 

This pathetic situation of 
dance failures leads to the prev- 
alent boredom that is bothering 
my roommate and I, and just 
about everyone else. 

Even the partygivers on 
"apartment row," better known 
as Congress Avenue, arc bored. 
Last week end the North Caroli- 
na apartment — known lately 
as the "nitty gritty" — tln-ew 
a couple of parties, but what 
PBJC needs is a gigantic "bore- 
dom breaker." 

Some group, club, organiza- 
tion or someone should rent an 
off-campus dance floor, get a 
good band, invite everyone to 
come casually and I do believe 
it would be big. 

All campuses go through this 
depression period at this time 
of the year . . . it's such a 
long time between semester 
break and Spring vacation.

Illegal Actions Cause Hardships 

By Don Gilchresr 
Sports Editior 

Rick Easton and Edgar Guest, in satisfying their 
own greed to participate in intramurals, threw out all 
school rules governing sports. 

As captain of the Blasies, Easton falsified the entry 
form by using the nanaes of two persons not even 
connected with the team. 

Easton has been overheard stating that he "does 
not care whether he is put on social or intramural 
probation." After hearing this statement, I beheve that 
the I and R Board should carry out further disciplinaiy 

The other offender, Edgar Guest, a sophmore, 
should get the worst of the punishment. He not only 
knew about the ineligible players, but also he was 
playing while on a medical waiver. 

A student with a medical waiver is exempt from 
all physical education courses. By playing as a member 
of the Blasies, Guest not only jeopardized his own life, 
but also put the physical education department in a 
precarious position. 

This editor feels that the men's division of the 
Intramural and Recreational Board was much too 
lenient and personally feels that more disciplinary 
action should be taken in this case.

Enoscope Works On Campus 

By BOB McAllister 

Feature , Editor 

Ever get a ticket on campus? 
If you haven't yet, and are 
guilty of excessive speeding, 
you may soon experience the 
delightful sensation of being 
arrested. The Campus Police, in 
addition to faculty members of 
the Safety Committee and sev- 
eral helpful students, are initiat- 
ing a campaign to curb campus 
violations and reduce traffic 

For the benefit of those who 
have not come into contact with 
it, there is a new device being 
used on campus to calculate the 
speed of automobiles without an 
officer having to chase them. 
The device is known as the 
Enoscope. This tricky little 
gadget consists of a white box

Hackman May Ruin Schools 

VOL. XXIV, No.1'6 

PALM BEACH JUNIOR COLLEGE Friday, March 20, 1964 

An Editorial 

Hackman Urged To 
Cancel Ignorance 



"Schools Will Not Open in September (?)' was the 
glaring headline of a special edition of The Palm Beach 
Teacher which was circulated county-wide to parents 
and students last week. 

In a nutshell, Mr. Clem F. Hackman, 3505 So. Ocean 
Blvd., Highland Beach, has filed suit in Circuit Court 
to have the November 5, 1963, school millage election 
declared null and void. 

Haclcman, considered to be "a symbol for those 
who oppose any tax increase" by The Palm Beach 
Teacher will, if successful in Circuit Court, face 
Palm Beach County with "virtual ruin for a decade 
or more." 
The Teacher said, "Now if Mr. Hackman is 
successful in his legal maneuver, the school Board of 
Public Instruction may have only ten mills with which 
to operate a rapidly expanding school system. This 
ten-mill tax would be one-third less than the Board 
feels is necessary for each school year in the next 

The effects of the suit are already taking a toll. 
Teacher recruitment for the 1964-65 school year is on 
a shaky basis. Charles Wilson, teacher recruiter for 
the county, cannot promise concrete salaries to appli- 
cants for, if the Hackman legal action is victorious, 
all employees would suffer a 40 per cent pay cut. The 
Teacher reports that "some teachers have already filed 
applications in other counties as a result of the uncertain 
local situation. Recruitment of new teachers for next 
year is at. a standstill. Who wants to take a job in 
Palm Beach County when we cannot tell them what 
their salary will be?" 

There are many other setbacks, if Hackman wins 
his battle, to deprive Palm Beach County of money 
that is needed to educate our youth in a rapidly growing 
educational system. Among these, as outlined by The 
Palm Beach Teacher, are: 

1. Close schools about IWarch 8, 1965. (A hard-nosed 
analysis might show that schools could not open in 
September, 1964.) 

2. Lose 50 per cent or more of our teachers and 

3. Elimination of pupil transportation. 

4. The closing of school cafeterias. 

5. Elimination of sports and other extracurricular 

6. No building program. 

7. Silly as it may seem, it might be necessary to 
charge tuition for each pupil in our public schools. 
This would amount to more than $90 per pupil. 

8. Lose approximately $650,000 per month of the 
Minimum Foundation Program subsidy. 

9. Lose about $10,000,000 in local spending. 

A man by the name of Hackman and his attorney. 
Republican State Representative Donald Reed of Boca 
Raton, are confronting our county with educational rui- 

Go right ahead, Mr, Hackman, and try to ruin 
us; but the next time you see a school kid walking 
down the street, we hope you will not be content in 
knowing that, in the long and short run, you will be 
depriving him of sound educational pursuit. 

Cancel your suit, Mr. Hackman. . .cancel your 
ignorance of the fact that Pahn Beach County drastical- 
ly needs 20 mills to educate our youth and to pay 
our teachers.

'Comber Editorial Leading The Way On Campus 

'Dirty Movie' ... No! 


"Damaged Goods," billed as the "startling truth 
about VD that everj' teenager and adult should know," 
comes to the Palm Beaches Friday night for a limited 

Noticing the, perhaps, misleading title of the movie. 
Beachcomber reporters conferred with the Palm Beacli 
County Health Department. The movie, according to 
Mr. Hughes of the health department, is "highly 
recommended by health officials of this county." 

The film is regarded as strictly educational with 
a 'Hollywood touch'. Students attending this movie 
should not go with the intention of seeing a so-called 
'dirty mo\ie'. It is evident, as proved by the 158 cases 
of infectious syphilis in Palm Beach County last year, 
that the movie should prove to be very enlightening 
and educational. 

Statistics compiled by the health department of this 
county reveal that Broward Comity ranks first in 
infectious syphilis cases for 1963 with 286 cases. 
Hillsborough County is second with 244 cases, followed 
by Dade with 184 cases. Palm Beach County ranks 
fourth in the state of Florida. Duval is fifth with 121 
cases reported last year. 

Not in accordance with Beachcomber policy to 'plug' 
profit-making events not associated with student or 
campus activities, the 'Comber suggests that it might 
be worthwhile to view the film... for a "liberal education 
outside the classroom." 

Fluoridation . . . Yes! 



A current topic of what might be described as idle 
discussion is the pro's and con's of fluoridation. 

According to the Committee to Protect Our Chil- 
dren's Teeth Through Fluoridation, "Fluoridating a 
municipal water supply is as uncomphcated as adding 
chlorine to reduce disease bacteria, and the effective- 
ness in reducing tooth decay an average of 65 per 
cent by the addition of one part fluoride to a million 
parts water is equal m its efficiency to chlorination." 

The con, as presented by Jacob Soloman, president 
of the Anti-Fluoridation League, is that fluoridation "Is 
the adding of a deadly, cumulative poison to drinking 
water for the scientifically unproved purpose of helping 
children's teeth resist cavities." 

The answer to this question of 'to fluoridate or 
not to fluoridate', in my opinion is a simple, "yes. 
. .fluoridate our water." I feel certain that the facts 
- proven facts - are in black and white in front of 
the March 31 voter. 

The pro-fluoridation committee reports the "Fluori- 
dation does only one thing. In city after city, after 
study upon study by trained, unbiased researchers, 
controUed fluoridation of drinking water reduces tooth 
decay m children an average of 65 per cent and as 
much as 89.1 per cent. 

This means that the average person at age 18 has 
32 teeth and 12 are decayed, missing or filled, without 
the benefits of properly fluoridated water After 
fluoridation over a period of years, comparable samples 
of people at the age of 18 have only four decayed 
missing or filled teeth." ' 

To The 

United Party Failure 

To the Editor: 

Last year most of the students 
at Palm Beach Jiuiior College 
were slightly surprised and then 
pleased when it became known 
that we had finally ai-rivcd 
politically spealdng euid were 
going to have a political party 
on our canrpus. We were so 
pleased that we swept our politi- 
cal party to victory at the polls 
last April. 

This year we again demon- 
strated our confidence in the 
United Party when we elected 
their candidates for Freshman 
Class officers. 

Now it seems that our confi- 
dence in the United Party was 
misplaced. The United Party 
members have not lived up to 
their high sounding campaign 
promises. The members of the 
United Party have failed the 
students of PBJC. 

Instead of a harmonious SGA 
working for the benefit of all 
the students at PBJC, we have 
seen a Student Government 
which has been a model of 
incompetence and petty bick- 
ering. We have seen Sophomore 
Class officers forced to resign 
because of inadequate grades, 
and the president of the Student 
Government resign because he 
couldn't get along with other 
members of the Executive 
Council. Members of the Student 
Government have even lowered 
themselves to name calling 
thi-ough our school paper. 

Out of the oi-iginal 12 mem- 
bers of the SGA Executive 
Council approximately one-third 
have resigned and the members 
that remain seem to have lost 
interest in their jobs. These 
United Party membere shouldn't 
have run for office if it was 
for the gloi-j' of being in the 
SGA. They should have realized 
that bemg a member of the SGA 
was a responsible position which 
would entail considerable effort 
on their part. They seemed to 
be under the impression that 
their SGA work could be taken 
care of at the 10:00 break once 
a week. 

With elections drawing near 
the students of PBJC should 
think of the way the elected 
members of the SGA have gov- 
erned our school during the last 
year. Maybe the answer is 
.mother political party on our 
campus to give the students of 
PBJC a better choice of who 
mil govern_ them.

'Gripes ' Of Wrath 

By Ron Johnson 

I guess everyone feels a little 
son-y for himself at one time 
or another. Today is my day 
to gripe about my plight as 
Editor of the Beachcomber and, 
by all means, to offer a few 

My gripe is certain faculty 
members that have petty ideas 
about the newspaper I repre- 

I have never put it down in 
black and white, but it has 
always been my policy to con- 
sider, as silly as it may seem, 
The Beachcomber as a newspa- 
per and, for sm-e, not a public 
relations bulletin. 

There are, however, and sad 
it is, faculty members on this 
campus who give nie the im- 
pression that they think the 
Beachcomber is merely a 
printed means to publicize their 
efforts, department and 


I can understand, if I were 
a faculty member at PBJC, a 
desii-e to have my accompUsh- 
ments known to my "boss," 
associates and, also, the stu- 
dents. But, I would also under- 
stand that the Beachcomber is 
a student newspaper . . . written 
by students . . . for the students 
and the overall welfare and 
information of PBJC. 

There is hardly a week that 
goes by, however, that some 

faculty member doesn't liave 
some land of complaint per- 
taining to the Beachcomber. 

Complaints, criticisms, and 
downright condemnations arc 
personally invited if they uve 
directed, either written or stat- 
ed in person, to me. 

As Editor, I am personally 
responsible for anything and 
everything that is printed in the 
'Comber. Why do complaining 
faculty members go over ni.v 
head and do their griping to the 
president of this college? The 
Beachcomber is a learning labo- 
ratory and we do not proft;.ss 
to be professional in any way, 
even though we try hard to be 

Of course, our publications 
adviser, is responsible for tlie 
Beachcomber, but one man can 
only do so much. The adviKcr 
must count on me and my sUiff 
to responsibly edit the Beach- 
comber to the best of om- abili- 

I can understand the president 
of PBJC or any other high level 
administrator might want to go 
through channels to comment on 
Beachcomber copy, but no one 
will ever convince me that any 
staff or faculty member is jus- 
tified in complaining behind my 
back to the president. 

I am capable of "taldng it" 
as well as "dishing it out." Try 
me . . . please.

Unsung Heroes Take A Bow 

by Jim Dickson 

The least noticed and proba- 
bly least publicized of all partic- 
ipants of I-m basketball were 
the officials. Most of these men 
attended a preliminary officials 
clinic sponsored by the PE 
Dept. All of these men did an 
exceptional job, despite some 
remarks made by many losing 
teams. The two men which 
come to mind as being the most 
outstanding in their duties ai-e 
Phil DeFreest and Jim Mar- 
shall. Both these men called all 
of the toui-nament games, and 
I might add did an excellent 
job. For Marsliall this was the 
second year that he has per- 
formed tliis ardous task. Jim 
also helps out at the "Y" in 
West Palm. Phil not only calls 
game at PBJC, but is employed 
by the Florida High School 
Athletic Association to call JV 
and Jr. High games. In conclu- 

sion, a salute is needed for 
these unsung heroes. Gentlemen 
I salute you.

Managing Editor 

Note: This is tlie second in 
a series of articles designed to 
acquaint the students of PBJC 
with programs and facilities of 
Florida Atlantic University a 
new state institution located in 
Boca Raton. 

Florida's newest state univer- 
sity, FAU, opens in September. 
It is the only university in the 
nation to offer solely the junior, 
senior and graduate years of 
study. Students majoring in the 
biologies find a wide and varied 
curricula available at FAU. 

Students will learn biology by 
doing biology says Dr. Saurino, 
professor of microbiology. Biolo- 
gy majors at FAU are urged 
to have an individual experim- 
ental project. 

The first trimester of studies 
for the biology student covers 
molecular biology up to the 
viruses. Lower forms of plant 
and animal life, bacteriology 
and a touch of ecology fill the 
second trimester. Third trimes- 
ter students study more com- 
ilex forms of life ul to man 
nd the fourth trimester deals 

with mamalian biology. 

Majors are encouraged to car- 
ry 15 overall credits, eight of 
them in biology each trimes- 

"We want to motivate you in 
the area of your desii-es," said 
Dr. Murry Sanders, head of the 
Department of Biological Sci- 
ences. FAU has a loose system 
with no definite requirements 
for everyone. The amount of

Students preparing to enter 
FAU as biology majors should 
have one semester of zoology 
and one of biology. Preferably 
the student should have a se- 
mester of inorganic chemlstrj' 
and one of math. If possible, 
one more semester of cheraisti-y 
and a semester of physics 
should be added to those al- 
ready listed. 

If a student plans to teach 
biology, his major is in biology 
and his minor is in education. 
Upon graduation the student 
may be certified to teach. 

Actual biology work is always 
encouraged and research grants 
will provide summer jobs as 
assistants for some students. 

A Company of One 
On Stage March 23 

PhiUp Hanson, a Company

in the PBJC auditorium on 
March 23 at 9:50 a.m. 

Hanson, alone on a stage 
without costume or makeup, 
assumes the identities of more 
than 100 characters. The 
speed with which he changes 
from character to character 
makes his performances

Included in the program will 
be five one-man shows — 
"Moby Dick" by Herman Mel- 
ville, "TheRebels," "Kings 
and Clowns" by William 
Shakespeare, "Villians- and 
Fools" by Shakespeare. 

Test Tomorrow 

The last high school place- 
ment tests are to be given 
tomorrow in the college audito- 
rium. Over 200 students from 
Seacrest and Riviera Beach 
high schools are expected. 

Since February 22, more than 
700 people have been tested. 
"We hope to have more than 
1,000 students during the four 
testing periods," said Mr. War- 
ner, guidance counselor. 

Lake Worth, Jupiter, Pahn 
Beach, Cardinal Newman, For- 
est Hill, Belle Glade, and Paho-

Associate Editor 

For the first few minutes we 
concenu-ated on eating. The 
girls liad just come from biolo- 
gy lab and I from the library. 
They were eating beef stew and 
apple pie. I munched on French 
fries and sipped a coke. After 
the fu-st pains of hunger had 
been satisfied we started the 
inteiview. I asked questions 
■-ather hesitantly and they re- 
plied politely. 

Using an interpreter, I found 
that Mai-tha Mauny, 16, and 
Lala Gomez, 21, traveled from 
their home in Callao, Peru, to 
the United States with 'Opera- 
tion Amigo'; however since the 
girls wanted an extended visit, 
they will be traveling home 

I asked them what I thought 
would be a simple question: 
"What is the most sui-prising 
thing you have found in the 
States?" Through our interpret- 
er, Cecil Perez, they replied, 
"People talk too fast!" The ice 
was broken, and we pledged om- 
international Iriendship with a 
hearty laugh. 

Mai-tha, who speaks English 
fluently, will be a junior m high 
school this year. (This is Peru's 
summer vacation.) Lala works 
as a beautician and has been 
studying English with records at 
home in the evenings for the 
last three months. 

Both enthusiastic hobbyists,

Jerry Hastings, 5555 Garden 
Avenue, received the first $200 
scholm-ship from the PBJC 
Alumni Association as The Palm 
Beach Post-Times newspaper 
carrier boy to collect the most 
money for the Dollars for Schol- 
ars campaign. 

The campaign, with the coop- 
eration of Merle Ellis, circula- 
tion manager for The Post- 
Times, and T. N. Thompson, his 
assistant, will again take place 
on a Sunday in late February 
or early March in 1965; the 
exact Sunday depends on when 
Easter falls next year. 

The Post-Times, under the 
direction of Mr. Wes Boyett, 
dii-ector of lay-out, and Frank 
Harkwell, director of advertis- 
ing, will develop a supplement 
to be placed in the Sunday 
Post-Times. Included in the sup- 
plement will be a Dollars for 

Scholars envelope. This, accord- 
ing to Dean Paul J. Glynn, will 
assure each subscriber (85,000) 
of getting an envelope. Addition- 
al supplements and envelopes 
are to be printed for distribution 

The supplement is to contain 
pictures and copy concerning all 
phases of junior college life in 
the various departments, such 
as Technical, Nursing, Dental 
Hygiene, Drama, Art, Business, 
Home Economics, Intramm-al 
Sports, Student Activities, Eve-

New Political Party On Campus 
Inaugural Meeting Set Today 

The birth of a new political 
party on the PBJC campus will 
become evident today as the 
party conducts its first political 
rally during the ten o'clock 
break in room SC-26. 

Mike Brown, spokesman for 
the group, has just returned 
from FSU where he observed 
the two-party system in action. 
He indicated he liked the ideas 
presented and plans to use them 
in the new party. 

"We wiU be the fhst institu- 
tionalized party on campus," 
said Brown. "We wiU have a 
constitution and executive coun- 

cU composed of chairman, vice- 
chairman, secretary, and treas- 
urer. Each club on campus, 
whether social, religious, or 
service, is allowed one voting 

Brown said a two-party sys- 
tem has long been needed on 
our campus. He stated that both 
political parties will be recog- 
nized by the school. 

"This organization will stabi- 
lize the whole student body and 
political policies of the school," 
added Brown. "There will be 
more coodination and PBJC will 
have a two-party system to be 
proud of."

Letters To The Editor 

The Beachcomber editorial staff has been enhght- 
ened by the number of 'Letters to the Editor' received 
in the 'Comber office recently. 

One of the greatest services the Beachcomber can 
offer is space for PBJC students to voice their opinions 
and remarks. 

The Beachcomber welcomes all letters. Letters must 
be signed and names will be withheld upon request 
of the writer. The 'Comber resei-ves the right to edit 
all letters for length and grammar. 

All letters can be hand-carried or mailed to the 
Beachcomber office in the Finance Building. 


Frosh Prexy Likes Us 

To the Editor, 

I want to take this time to 
congratulate you and the Beach- 
comber staff for a line issue 
last week. 

The Beachcomber has come 
from a 1963 slump into fuU- 
fiedged gloiy in recent months 
in readability and ability to find 
pertinent information. 

Congratulations on a fine 'Cel- 
lar Door" and please continue 

to keep PBJC infomied. 

Une of this school's major 
problems has been placed upon 
the independent student and 
many members of the faculty; 
but with the initiation of good 
all-school spmt and a newspa- 
per that calls a spade just that, 
this may not be a problem next

Pro And Con Of Civil Rights 

To the Editor, 

Much has been said, pro and 
eon, about the civil rights bill. 

As most students know, it is, 
at present, being deliberated in 
the Senate. 

Loud, voicy remarks have 
been heard on this c a m'p u s 
about the bill, and the majority 
of students ai-e stating opinions 
one way or another. 

I would like to suggest to 

students who are interested in 
the future of our countiy to 
contact me if they would hke 
to read the bill. 

Senator Smathers and Senator 
Holland have stated that Uiey 
are against the bill and I feel 
that if more students read the 
bill they woiUd agree with these 
two great gentlemen.

United Party Prexy Speaks 

To the Editor: 

The United Party, the first political party on 
campus, was formed for the purpose of insuring that 
the best qualified candidates be placed in office. The 
cost of an average political campaign, even on the 
coUege level, is too great for the average candidate 
to handle. With this fact in mkid, several persons who, 
although they were sophomores and would not be 
governed by the Student Government of this year, were 
mterested in the quahty of the future Student Govern- 
ments. They banded together last year to form a 
political party, pooUng their funds, time, and abilities 
to support the candidates they felt were the most 
qualified. This principle holds true for the United Party 
today, ■ even though candidates and issues change 

Some of the United Party candidates in SGA have 
been cnticized; however, many of the officers thit do 
outstandmg work in SGA are United Party members 
This year we have seen activity funds used for a 
Hootenanny' that was a tremendous success. The 
Intercollegiate Sports Committee report prepared by 
the United Party leader last year has been turned over 
to a Faculty Committee this year; experiments with 
a percentage basis for activity fee allotments to the 
literarj' publications has been experimented with- a 
new Constitution has been accepted by the Student 
Body: and an all-school activity day is in the planning 
stages. These were all planks in the platform of the 
United Party. The United Party candidates that were 
elected last spring and last fall have been working 
and leading these projects. 

The United Party works for the Student Body by 
securing good representation for you. Since the estab- 
bshment of the United Party, the voting percentage 
has mcreased 15-20 per cent. We welcome the creation 
ot a new pai-ty on campus, as we always have; for 
^ve feel this will mcrease the voting rate - a direct 
sign of increased student interest m THEIR eovern 
ment. °

United Party 


Covers The 

Engineering Workshop 

Fifteen civil engineers came 
to Palm Beach Junior College 
Friday to learn to talk. What's 
so unusual about this? They 
came to learn to talk to a com- 

Recently Dr. C.L. Miller of 
Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology developed a computer 
language which enables the civil 
engineer to communicate direct- 
ly with the computer using 
regular civil engineering 

This new language is called 
COGO — to non-engineers it's 
simply a combining of the 
words coordinate (and) GeOme- 

It is designed to solve any 
coordinate geometry problem 
with the exception of spu-ais and 
parabolas. It can be useful for 
those who want to solve prob- 
lems dealing with such things 
as linear measurements and 

The COGO program at MIT 
is so successful that they are 
now able to assign civil engi- 
neering students problems 
which, a few years ago, were 
only given to graduate students 
in civil engineering. 

The workshop, first of its kind 
to be held on the PBJC campus, 
was conducted by Pete Charron, 
Sonja Grove and Dick Preziosi 
from the systems engineering 
staff of IBM. 

Dean Paul W. Allison of the 
Data Processing Department 
served as the coordinator of the 

Dr. H.C. Manor expressed 
interest in an-anging similar 
workshops in the areas of sci- 
ence, business and the arts as 
the needs arise. 

Free Tickets To Play 

If you know your Shakespeare 

you can win free tickets to 
"Comedy of Errors" in two 
different contests being spon- 
sored by Phi Rho Pi. 

Two tickets go to each of 
three persons making the most 
word combinations from the let- 
ters of the name 'Shakespeai-e.' 
The tickets are good for "Come- 
dy of Errors" in the auditorium 
at 8:30 p.m., Thursday, April 

One ticket a day will be 
awarded to the first person iden- 
tifying lines from Shakespeai-e's 
plays which will appear in the 
daily bulletin. 

Contest number one closes 
April 16. The second contest will 
run every day for two weeks 
preceding the play. 

Both contests will be judged 
by faculty members.

Daytona . . . One Time 

By Ron Johnson 

They tell me that (iO,00() col- 
lege students are expected to 
invade Daytona Beach for East-

houses and a group of students 
walking around with infectious

a great behever in getting all 
the education you can; once you 
have it, nobody can ever take 
it away from you." 

T. N. (Tommy) Thompson 
conmiented that it is a "worth- 
while program for students who 
go through tlie junior college. 
I worked on the program while 
in college but dropped out when 
I married " 



SmcgicI S'lioln 

Will they be surfin' at Dayto- 
na ? It's doubtful. Other 
things will be going on, how- 

shudder if they were to view 
the action at Daytona this week, 
but it's a time for blowing off 
a little steam after the pressure 
of exams and the general rigors 
of college. 

PBJC students wiUundoubteri- 
'y flock to the beaches of 
Daytona and also Fort I^auilcr- 
dale, but when we tome back 
to campus we lia\e mid- 
semester exams to look forward 
to. It rather leaves a damper 
on the situation, but so go the 
trials and tribulations of the 
semester system. 

It seems that Fort Ijaudcrdale 
has clamped down on the vaca- 
tioning students, and Daytona 
has taken the college Easier 
spotlight. We were talking the 
other day about Daytona's 
"getting tough." That would 
leave Lake Worth beach. Only 
in one's wildest dreams could 
60,000 college kids be visualized 
on Lake Worth beach! 

It should be quite a vacation. 
As one local radio announcer 
said "Daytona Beach has its 
police force ready as CO, 000 
college students, with a thirst 
for 'suds', are expected to con- 
verge on the Florida resort city 
this weekend." 

Here's hoping Daytona doesn't 

Brown Visits 
Supreme Court 

Mike Brown returned last 
week from Tallahassee where 
he spent a week in the office 
of Supreme Court Justice Steve 
O'Connell as a representative of 
the PBJC Political Union. 

The Political Union is an 
affiliate of the Florida Citizen- 
ship Clearing House and, 
through this, each spring a 
selected student spends a week 
in Tallahassee observing the 
Florida government in action. 

During his week's stay, Brown 
studied case briefs and listened 
to supreme court oral argu- 
ments of the seven judges. 

To The Editor 

Quite often one hesitates to 
do a favor for someone especial- 
ly a 'foreigner.' 

I would hke to say that I am 
proud to be a student of PBJC 
and a member of the Beach- 
comber staff. The reception of 
om- two Pemvian visitors on 
campus last week was very 
gratifying. Our friends from 
Peru were impressed and had a 
very good time. I am sure that 
they will speak well of the 
students and faculty they met 
while on our campus.

"Up, up and over goes the 
Russian high jumper, Valery

have been echoed through Madi- 
son Square Garden, Boston Gar- 
den and many other sport sta- 
diums In the United States and 

The Russian and American 
atlitetes have done much to 
strengthen relations between 
these two countries. 

TV's Wide Worid of 'Sports'

this same Russian athlete as the

Second Title 

Ray Long captured his second 
individual title in less than three 
weeks with a marathon victory 
over Jeff Lewis in the finals of 
men's badminton. The scores

Armand Yates captured third

victory over Mark Lewis. 

The teams of Lewis-Lewis, 
Art Brodeur-BUl Moss, and Ray 
Long-Mark Kuebler will play to

At press time, scores were not

Big Weekend

Saturday with the opening of the 
Old Fashioned County Fair at 
11:00 a.m. Approximately 25 
booths with food, games, and 
shows are to be built along the 
fairway located east of the hard 
court behind the gym. The Fair. 

will continue until 6:00 p.m. 

A Sophomore Class dance Sat- 
urday night winds up the week- 
end fete. The Vet's Club will 
crown the 1964 Miss Wishing 
Well. The Gaheon queen con- 
testants will be presented and 
winners announced. 

"I am happy with the amount 
of enthusiasm shown by clubs 
and hope this weekend will 
bring about more school unity 
and spirit," said Missleton. He 
estimated that more than 100 
people were ahready working on 
the project. 

also given the people of tlie free 
world a ciiance t(3 view these 
two nations, plus many other 
countries, meeting face to face 
on the field of battle. Past 
records have shown that the 
Russian athletes have walked 
away with many more medals 
than our athletes. 

Tokyo will play host to the 
19(J4 Summer Olympics, in 
which these nations will meet 
head on for the titles and 
medals which ai'e awarded to 
the top three winners of each 

The men of the United States 
should fare much better than 
they did at Innsbi-uck recently. 
Unless there is a miracle, the 
women of the USSR will win 
most of the Women's Track and 
Field Events. 

A majority of competitors in 
different fields of sports have 
travelled to the USSR and come 
back a winner. One of the most 
notable victories for the United 
States was the year that the 
Amateur Basketball Team trav- 
elled to the distant land and 
never lost a game. 

One team that wOl try its luck 
at defeating the Russians is the 
top-professional Boston Celtics 
basketball team. The Celtics 
plan to leave soon idler they 
ai-e through with the N.B.A 
play-offs now in progress. 

In viewing events between 
these two nations, I get the 
feehng of security. Knowhig 
that the competition is a major 
rivalry conducted witliout any 
incident makes a person feel 
like the athletes are leading the 
way for peace and security 
between the two powers. 

The most stirring example of 
this was the hand-clasp of 
friendship shown by the athletes 
in the exit march of the Ameri- 
can and Russian athletes during 
the dual meet in Moscow. 

If the poUtical leaders could 
learn to settle their grievances 
in the way the athletes settle 
theirs, it would be a much 
better world.

Editor -in-chief 

"Spring Frolic plans are pro- 
gressing nicely," said Kirk Mid- 
dleton, Freshman Class presi- 
dent. The multi-event weekend 
is scheduled for April 17 and 18. 

Beauly and basektball will fill 
Friday, the first day of the fete. 
The Galleon beauty contest is 
tentatively planned for the eve- 
ning. Phi Da Di, I-m basketball

Access Road In Use 
Rests Traffic Snarl 

"Temporary" completion of the 
access road from Center Drive 
on the PBJC campus to Lake 
Worth Road is scheduled in the 
next few days. 

The new outlet will enable 
traffic leaving the campus to- 
ward Lake Worth to avoid the 
signal light at the corner of 
Congress Ave. and Lake Worth 

The rock base road is being 
built by the County Highway 
Department. The road will re- 
ceive a sand and oil seal as 
soon as the rock settles. 

Free use of the access road 
is blocked by the island in the 
middle of Lake Worth Road and, 
as Dr. Manor points out, the 
county commission has no au- 
thority to cut through the island 
because it is on a state road. 
He added that the State Road 
Department has been written, 
but it will probably be next year 
before the job is done. 

The college has also requested 
to be placed on the State Road 
Division's priority list to black 
top the road as soon as possi- 

Winners of this game are to 
play the Beachcomber all-star 
Saturday evening. 

The Old-Fashioned County 
Fair is feature of Saturday's 
events. Opening at 11:00 a.m. 
the fair will include approxi- 
mately 25 booths with food, 
games and shows. 

A 'Dunking Booth' is spon- 
sored by the Vet's Club. Several 
dignitai-ies of the student body 
will 'man' a perch and will 
receive a dousing in cold water 
when a lucky player hits the 
target with a ball. 

Phi Da Dl is holding a 'Pie 
Throwing Contest' and a 'Car 
Smash'. Circle K will supervise 
a 'Ring Toss'. Other booths 
include a fortune teller, cake 
walk, cotton candy and food 

A Sophomore Class Dance is 
to climax the weekend. 'Miss 
Wishing Well 19G4' contestants 
will be introduced and the queen 
crowned during the dance. 

"The amount of enthusiasm 
displayed by students is just 
tremendous," said Middleton.

The first formal art exhibit

A wide variety of work by 
the six members of the art 
faculty comprises the entire 
premiere showing. 
The display includes both 
painting and ceramics and a 
variety of types, colors and 
materials have been used. 

Viewers may see samples of 
acrylic, a new process which 

uses a polymer emulsion, offer- 
ing a high degree of luminosity 
in a wide range of colors. Also 
examples of paintings in neo- 
realism, abstract expressions, 
constructionism, and realistic 
both free and portraits. 

IndividuaUty is as apparent in 
the ceramics and enameling as 
in the paintings. 

Mrs. Nina Jensen, chairman 
of the Art Department, stated 
that because of the tremen- 
dous interest in the art show, 
there will be others soon 

which will include the works 
from local artists as well as 
traveling shows.

We Have A Policy! 

With a change in editors always comes a barrage 
of questions asking what, if any changes will be made. 
To answer these questions and to set a guide by which 
our readers may go, we state the following policy: 

We select, edit, and display news on the basis of 
its significance and its genuine usefulness to the readers. 
News and comments of most immediate interest and 
importance to the campus shall have the priority for 
the available space. 

We exert the maximum effort to print the truth 
in all news situations and correct promptly all errors 
of fact for which the Beachcomber is responsible. 

Bulletin-type announcements may be accepted and 
will usually be printed under the heading 'Comber 
Combings'. A brief round-up of smaller but important 
news stories are found under 'Beachcomber Covers 

We have not and will not print department course 
offerings with the exception of first-time courses. News 
comments and stories from unreliable or anonymous 
persons will not be accepted. 

We reserve the right to stimulate interest in or 
support individuals in crusades and campaigns, thus 
increasing the good work and eliminating the bad on 

We will not set aside a certain page or space for 
special interest groups. However newsworthy informa- 
tion from these groups is accepted and treated as such. 

All editorial views or expressions of opinion 
appearing in the Beachcomber shall be labeled as 

We welcome 'Letters To The Editor'. These letters 
must be signed, but names are withheld upon request 
of the writer. The 'Comber reserves the right to edit 
all letters for length and grammar. 


OOOH's And AAAH's 

We read earlier in the Beachcomber that some 
organization was going to repair the sidewalk from 
the lounge to the parkuig lot. May we remind them 
there are only eight more weeks of school left. 

We like the new access road; it sure saves time. 

The bulletin boards on campus are a bit drab. We 
think it would help if students removed their stale news 
before it became crusted to the board. 

We noticed the new lights being installed in the 
north parkmg lot before Easter but we haven't seen 
them used yet. 

Tick, tock, so goes the clock. But oh, no, they're 
wrong again — as usual.

By Flo Felly 
Associate Editor 

Mid-term exams are over for 
another semester, and I am free 
at last to worry about my 
research paper which is due in 
one week. Free, that is, until 
my mid-term grades catch up 
with me. 

Like the 'Alpha-Bits' dog, the 
postman is my feared and mor- 
tal enemy. DaUy I await his 
arrival in his red, white and 
blue putt - mobile like a fly 
caught in a spider web about to 
be devoured. I am a trapped 
scholar, soon to be the victim 
of an IBM report. 

The IBM machine, as you 
may recall, is a mechanical 
wonder that sorts out and re- 
cords grades and averages with 
^Einstein-Uke brains. Also, it 
may further be recalled, the 
robot monster types out names 
and addresses, formulates tran- 
scripts, and prints permanent 

But my connection with the 
philosophical equipment is one 
of terror, for its printing proc- 
ess and type controls my happi- 
ness and my weekend freedom. 

This trifling phobia, I am told 
by my analyst, is a direct result 
of "anti-scholiiritis", more com- 
monly known as "not wanting 
to study," 

Since the beginning of the 
semester in February, I have 
been awed by the abundance of 
activities in which to participate 
— and neglect my studies. 

Socializing in the library 
seems to be a favorite pastime 
of PBJC'ers, with co-ed intra- 
murals and pledging i-unning a 
close second. Popular with the 
coUegc crowd as time-killers 
are chess games in the lounge, 
and paper cup stacking. 

See what I mean? With the 
variety of hustle and bustle 
urged upon me, maybe 1 should 
change my major to extra- 
curricular activities. 

Civil Rights Bill 

As the future unfolds, we see 
it being shaped by an old 
political ideology. 

As popular as it may be to 
some, as distasteful to othcr.s, 
the civil rights bill is being 
carried through Congress by the 
use of the Machevehan principal 
of 'the end justifies the mean.' 

We respect the right to peti- 
tion and show our objections to 
congressional laws. But when 
force, or threat of force is used 
to influence the voting of a bill, 
we lose a part of our democra- 

If the present demonsUations 
by the Negro minority force 
passage of the civil right's 
measure in its entirety, it could 
well be a sign of a declining 

Demonstrations have become 
so unruly, that when a civil 
rights leader promises a peace- 
ful march, we breath a sigh of 
relief. Should this be so?

junior coUege could do for them 
and mentioning that perhaps

Work on the colorful set for

Former Student 
Directs Own Play 

John Rossello, a former stu- 
dent at PBJC, has written and 
is directing an original musical- 
comedy review to be presented 
by the Thalian-Blackfriars at 
the University of Georgia. 

Scenes and dialogue are im- 
provised by actors by means of 
a scenario (synopsis or outline 
of a play). 

The setting is designed in a 
unique comic style by Holly 
Haas, assistant to the designer 
at the Royal Poinciana Play- 
house. Costumes are by Muni 
Teel, an art major at PBJC. 
She is assisted by May Keller. 
Lighting is under the supervi- 
sion of Mr. Peter Sargent, as- 
sisted by Carol Louks, Ban-y 
Isaacs, and Art Schleuter. Glo-- 
ria Chepens heads the painting 
crew. Master carpenters are 

Jay Murray and Jim Hardine. 
Props will be handled by Bob 
Lydiai-d and Mark Hiers. Jan 
Harrison, also an art major at 
JC, has designed the posters 
and program cover. ' All these 

people need assistants and as- 

The "Comedy", which is the 
last play nf the drama season 
at the college, will open Thurs- 
day, April 23, on the 400th 
anniversaiy of Shakespeai-e's 

speare's Comedy of Errors. 

The play is drawing much 
attention from the drama ma- 
jors and drama advocates be- 
cause of its original staging. 
Director Frank Leahy is staging 
"Comedy" in the style of the 
Comedia del Arte, a theatre 
form of the Renaissance which 
produced Punch and Judy, Har- 
lequin, and the oantomine. 

Added to the play are original 
dances choreographed by Mi-s. 
Lois Meyer, original music by 
Bob Lydiard, Mark Hiers, and 
Anne Ellen Quincey, and au- 
thentic period dance music. 

The production design is un- 
der the supei-vision of Mi-. Peter 
Sargent, who has captured two 
talented young ladies to help in 
the design of the show. Mimi 
Teel, PBJC ai't major, has 
designed the costumes and Hol- 
ly Haas, assistant designer at 
the Royal Poinciana Playhouse, 
has designed an exciting, versa- 
tile set. 

The "Comedy" is exciting 
because, if for no other reason, 
it is a Shakespearian play, 
something too seldom seen in 
the Palm Beach area. The Play- 
ers will tour the play for two 
week-ends following the produc- 
tion at the college. "Comedy" 

will travel to Daytona Beach on 
June 9th to the Florida Theatre 
Conference Drama Festival. 
The PBJC Players have been 
invited to present "Comedy" as 
an example of Shakespearian 

The production opens Thurs- 
day, April 23, and will run 
through Saturday, April 25. Get 
your reserved seats early. This 
is one play not to miss.

Underestimate No-Underestimate Yes 
By Don Gilchrest 

Here I am again standing on my soapbox. This 
editor is getting somewhat disturbed at the 'we are 
the greatest' attitudes of some teams recently. 

Recently while reading old issues of the "Comber', 
I came across the Ten Commandments of Sports, which 
is published in the paper today. 

Number eight of the Ten Commandments seems 
to be appropriate in many situations. It states "Thou 
shalt not underestimate an opponent or over-estimate 

Probably the most recent occasion was the defeat 
of the PabevoUers by the Misfits in Co-ed Volleyball. 
The Misfits defeated them (15-1) (15-11). The Misfits 
are tremendous competitors, but in being defeated 
earlier by a lesser known team, they knew that 
everything wasn't as 'rosey' as it looked. The other 
team involved, the Pabevollers,ran roughshod over their 
first four competitors and then their crystal ball was 
shattered by a fine team effort on the part of the 

In many cases, teams will play a tremendous game 
against better known opposition and then will slack 
off against weaker opponents. 

Any team of a lesser quality should participate 
with the idea that they are going to win the majority 
of their games. No individual should he down and quit 
while competing in sports. 

Fore! Men Tee Off 

The men's intramural golf 
tournament will be played April 
15 and 16 at the Atlantis Coun- 
try Club. Nine holes are ,to be

will tell. This year's team con- 
sists of nine returning lettermen 
and five new faces. When asked 
about their game plan, both Mr. 
King and Dr. White related that 
they were going to use a 'sag- 
ging two platoon' defense. This 
will be used to cut down on the

Who Failed? 

Next Wednesday, PBJC students troop to the polls 
to elect the candidates of their choosing. 

However, in this election, there will belittle choice. 
Of the four vacancies to be filled in the executive 
department, only one office has opposition. Three 
candidates are just as good as elected, simply because 
they took the time to fill out a qualification blank. 
Only 18 students are running for the 12 senatorial 

Scarcely a month ago, JC students voted to accept 
the new constitution, creating a student Senate and 
eliminating the SGA Executive Council, but when the 
time comes to back the new constitution, students shy 

A wild attempt to establish a two-party system 
on campus was defeated and it looks as if it will be 
a one-party sweep. Perhaps this is as it should be 
— for at least the party has established a concern 
for the future of PBJC.

The masculine members of 
our staff have noticed that the

that he flunked his mid-terms

has been repaired and now

Bits O' Fluff 



By Flo Felty 
Associate Editor 

Spring is here. The flowers 
bloom in parti-colored glory. 
The birds sing in trebled voices. 
The bees hum in unison. The 
birds and the bees. Spring. 

Baseball is here. The stadi- 
ums are packed with exuberant 
fans. The famous shortstop 
strikes out. The crowd yells, 
"Kill the umpire." The fans and 
the umpire. Spring. 

Elections are here. The politi- 
cal parties push their cam- 
paigns. The student votes at the 
polls. The best looking candi- 
date wins. The elections and the 
candidates. Spring. 

Spring fashion trends are 
here. The pointed-toe shoes are 
out The empire waist is in. The 
shift is in school and out. The 
pointed toes and the shift. 

Hayfever is here. The flower 
pollen is spread through the air 
by gentle breezes. The breeze 
carries the annoyance to a 
hayfever prone victim. The vic- 
tim is miserable until fall. The 
hayfever and the victim. 

Warm weather is here. The 

college crowd cuts classes to go 
to the beach. The girls come 
to classes in bareback dresses. 
The boys won't wear socks with 
their loafers. The boys and the 
girls. Spring. 

Spring fever is here. The 
population of PBJC is lazy. The 
scholars have purposely sched- 
uled classes in air-conditioned 
buildings. The professor drones 
on, putting his already uninter- 
ested class to sleep. The air- 
conditioned buildings and the 
uninterested scholars. Spring. 

N.B. 'In the spring a young 
man's fancy lightly turns to 
what the girls have been think- 
ing about all winter.' 

N.B. 2: Don't forget to 

The TB Mobile Unit Chest 
X-Ray, sponsored by the 
Circle K lub, will be on 
campus AprU 23 from 9:00

fmm^Letters To The Editor 

Cups Runneth Over 

Since the new Beachcomber 
is so anxious to receive letters 
to the editor, I thought I'd let 
you know what I think of your 
clever bit of photojournalism 
which appeai-ed in the last 
issue. I am referring to the "cup 
piling" photos and the small 
article which accompanied 

First, let me make it clear 
that I am in no way acquainted 
with the person involved; and 
therefore my views ai'e simply 
those of an average student 
reading his college newspa- 

What really makes me laugh 
is the fact Uiat right along side 
these pictures in an article 
entitled "We Have a Policy," 
you say, "We select, edit, and 
display news on the basis of its 
significance and its genuine use- 
fulness to the readers." 

All I can say is this: If 
belittling people behind the se- 
curity of a telephoto lens is what 
you consider significant news 
which has a genuine usefulness 
to readers, then you may as 
well put the name Beachcomber 
along side die Enquii-er, The 
New York Daily News, and 
Confidential Magazine. 

May I suggest that in the 
future you confine your candid 
camera to the many news 
events around campus which we 
never see in the Beachcomber; 
devote your rhetorical genius to 
something more creative than 
"low, his cups runneth over;" 
and get the facts behind your 
Bill Bulhs 

Eds. Note: Writer should 

have checked his facts. Al- 
though we ha^e a telephoto 
lens, we did not use it. 

More Cups 

Someone on the Beachcomber 
staff seems to have certain 
issues confused. For all those 
interested, Frank Mej'ers piled 
paper cups to niiike money for 
the Wishing Well, which he did 
— 25 cents to be exact. 

As for deriding him about his 
future plans of running for the 
Senate representing the Media, 
at least he is willmg and re- 
sponsible enough to carry on the 
work. It seems that the former 
Beachcomber editor found elev- 
houi-s worth of studies too much 
to handle. 

?eter Pisz 

Eds. Note: The former edi- 
tor is not running for senator. 
Neither is Mr. Meyers — he 
failed to qualify. 

Pro Chess 

I have just finished reading 
the April 10 issue of the Beach- 
comber. I had to restrain my- 
self from mentally regm-gitating 
in disgust afterwards. 

The page two column "A 
Result of Anti-Scholarship" was 
absolutely repugnant to my con- 
cepts of college life. Referring 
to chess playing in the lounge 
as "time killing" and referring 
to it in the same sense as 
"paper cup stacking" show Miss 
Felty's lack of knowledge of the 
strategy of chess. 

Jack Dorn 
Eds. Note: The above men- 
tioned was titled 'A Result of 
Anti-Scholaritis.' Need we say

Participation Is Welcomed 

By Don Gilchrest 
Sports Editor 

Participation has been excellent in intramurals thus 
far this year. 

The well-rounded program put into effect by the 
physical education department and the I and R Board 
has, no doubt, added to the greater number of partici- 

Activities which are encompassed in the intramural 
program range from Six Man Flag Tag Football to 
Swimming, which will be one of the last sports 
participated in by the students. 

Over seventy per cent of the student body partici- 
pates in the intramural program. The preceding 
percentage includes both men and women students. 

Participating in intramurals has some excellent 
rewards for the student.Oneis thepossibiity of meeting 
new people and making new friends. 

There are two major restrictions which prevent 
students from participating in intramurals. 

The major restrictions for not letting the student 
participate in intramurals are the medical waiver and 
failure to pay the activity fee. A medical waiver is 
given to all students who are unable to participate 
in physical education courses. There are two types of 
waivers, partial and complete. 

This editor would like to see some new faces m 
the remainder of the inti-amural progi-am.

This afternoon the Faculty

Phi Da Di looks in pretty good 
shape after having practiced 
this week for the key game 
Duke Barwick at press time 
was still undecided on a starting 
lineup. He could not make up 
his mind because of the abun- 
dance of talent which Phi Da 
Di has shown in practice. 

The 'Beachcomer' All Stars 
have also looked excellent in 
practices this past week. The All 
Stars will sit on the sidelines 
impatiently waiting for the out- 
come of Friday's game. 

On Saturday, basketball fes- 
tivities start at 6:00 P.M. as the 
'Comber' All Stars make their 
only appearance against Fri-

Miss Pat Stone was named 
Miss Freshman and Miss Linda 
Parrish, Miss Sophomore. 

Judges were Mrs. Ira Walden, 
Mrs. Clover Cheverett, Mrs.

Mr. Shepard Lesser. Miss Ellen 
Bennett, editor of the Galleon, 
also wishes to express her grati- 
tude to Mr. Dave Forshay who 
acted as Master of Ceremon-

the basis of general appearance, 
personality and the ability to 
converse well. 

Open House May 3; 
Many Exhibits Planned 

tivities were of a nature which 
could not be displayed, that all 
faculty would be on hand to 
explain their various programs. 

Campus Open House, an annu- 
al event set aside for the com- 
miuiity to see the campus, will 
take place Sunday, May 3, from 
1:30 to 4:30. 

Almost every department of 
the college will have equipment 
and facilities on display for the 

Special exhibits include the 
Annual Student Art Show; vocal 
and instrumental concerts; 
demonstrations of scientific 
equipment and the latest busi- 
ness machines. 

For those who have an Inter- 
est in physical fitness, there is 
to be gymnastics for men and 

Visitors will have opportunity 
to acquaint themselves with the 
two-year technical programs. 

Mrs. Nina K. Jensen, Open 
House committee chairman, 
stressed that, although much of 
the classroom teaching and ac- 

The Southside Kiwanls is to 
hold their annual barbeque near

will be from 12:30 to 6:30. 

'Comber Aids Frolics 

The Beachcomber played an 
active role in promoting and 
publicizing the first annual 
Spring Frolics. 

Prior to the festivities, the 
'Comer wrote several articles, 
playing up the idea in an 
attempt to aid the ailing "espir- 
it de corps." 

The Post-Times and the Mi- 
ami Herald used pictures and 
articles provided by 'Comber 

^Frolics A Success', Prexy; 
Frosh Adviser Disagrees 


Spring Frolics, the first two- 
day fete ever held at PBJC, has 
been haOed as a success by 
Kirk Middleton, Freshman Class 

In contrast to Middleton's 
statement, Mrs. Eleanor Myatt, 
Freshman Class adviser, stated, 
"I didn't think that it would be 
a success, it wasn't a success, 
and I don't think it ever will 
be a success." 

The country-fau- style of cele- 
bration opened on Friday after- 
noon with a rollicking basketball 
game between the Rinky Dinks, 
the faculty team, and the I-m 
champs, the Phi Da Di. 

Although students may have 
outnumbered the faculty at the 
game, the educators had theh 
own organized cheering section, 
wlio made themselves heard 
under the spu-ited leadership of 
four veiy attractive cheerlead- 
ers. The 'pom-pom girls' were 
Dean Jean Blesh, Miss Eliza- 
beth Tegiacchi, Mrs. Dean 
Baum, and Miss Karen Ross. 

It is difficult to comprehend 
the facidty's falliu-e to win with 
such an illustrious water boy as 
Dr. Harold C. Manor, college 

Youth had its day — the Phi 
Da Di's won 68-40. 

During half-time ceremonies, 
MC David Forshay announced 

the winner of the Miss Galleon 
contest. The honor went to 
Kathy Leeper. (see stoiy.) 

Saturday's events began 
around noon with the opening 
of a wide variety of carnival- 
type booths, ranging from pie- 
throwing to a real, live fortune 

Controversy and misunder- 
standing began at this time. 
Middleton stated he had asked 
Dr. Manor for permission to 
remain open during the evening. 
Several concession stands had 
indicated that they felt the 
crowds had been less than ex- 
pected. If allowed to remain open

An Editorial 

SGA Failed 

We were recently informed that the Galleon was in financial 
difficulty (see story page 2). The SGA issued partial funds tiie 
first semester with the understanding thatwhateverneeded would 
be allotted second semester. 

The Galleon, not conceiving that the SGA would withdraw 
its original statement went ahead with plans and drew up a 
contract with the publishing company. 

When it came time to turn over second semester funds, 
the SGA suddenly found they 'were short of monies' and they 
cut back on the Galleon budget. 

Who is to blame; how did it happen; and what will the 
Galleon do now? No one in SGA seems to have an answer. 

This is no small matter. Our SGA has goofed. Steps should 
be taken to insure against any similar mistakes next year. 

It is imperative that the adviser and organization know 
at the start of the year how much money will be allotted. 
A new established, organized and reliable means of allocating 
funds must be devised before other clubs find themselves in 
similar situations.

As I Vote . . . 

By Flo Felty 
Associate Editor 

My earliest memory of a 
voting booth is from the inside 
looking out. .At the tender age 
of four, I was first introduced 
to the black draped box of 
fame. I can remember my 
mother selecting the ballot lev- 
ers for me to release, even 
though I did not understand for 
whom my vote was cast. 

Today, again I go to the polls 
to vote. Arriving at the card tab- 
le station, I proclaim my desire 
to cast a ballot. Extending his 
palm, one of the coUege sires 
seated will inquire, "I.D.?" 

Now, my studentidentification 
card, or I.D., is an importani 
and esteemed possession to me 
for it regulates my campus 
social status and school activity 
attendance. However, my sire 
must not realize this, else, why 
would he scribble and then 
smear ink within its folds? 

In condolence, I am handed 
a faded mimeographed sheet of 
paper and the verdict must be 
reached. By the way, I have 
been thoughtfully provided with

Galleon Lacks Funds 



The Galleon is m linancfai 
danger due to a severe shortage 
of funds incurred when the SGA 
failed to alegate the promised 

"Vl'e had originally contracted 
for a book costing $6,300, not 
including the cost of cameras, 
equipment and materials," said 
Ellen Bennett, Galleon Editor. 
"Now we don't even have 
enough funds to pay for the 
book," she added. 

The Galleon was issued 82,500 
first semester with the agree- 
ment that whatever was needed 
second semester would be giv- 

At the start of the second 
semester the SGA announced it 
was short of funds but could 
scrape up §2,500 for the Gaheon. 
A week later $1,500 was depos- 
ited to the Galleon. 

To compensate for the loss of 
funds plans for a fom--page 
color spread was omitted and 
the number of pages cut back 
to 208, the same as last year. 

The Galleon staff has asked 
for sunmier delivery because 
there was no staff available to 
put the yearbook out earlier and 
also because of 10 per cent 
reduction in price for a summer 
delivery book. In order to cut 
cost copies of the annual will 
not be mailed to each student 
as originally planned. 

At the beginning of the year 
,the SGA head requested that the 
contingency fund which had built 
up over a period of years 
be used for extras, such as 
basic equipment, the four-page 
color pictures, more duotone 
and extra pages. 

"This could have been done," 
stated Miss Bennett, "Provided 
the SGA payed the basic cost 
of the book which included the 
same number of pages, same 
size book and same style cover 
as last year." 

The Beachcomber has stated 
that it will turn over all surplus 
funds. Fortunately the ad reve- 
nue has been greater than anti- 
cipated because of weekly publi- 
cations. They hope the funds will 
make up much of the necessary 



Peter Pisz, in a letter to the 
Beachcomber editor last week 
wrote, "It seems that the for- 
mer Beachcomber editor found 
eleven hours worth of studies 
too much to handle". 

My limited load at PBJC is 
not the reason 1 resigned as 
editor of the Beachcomber. 

Most importantly I have a 
new job that is nearly a full 
tune, 40 hour a week effort. I 
work for a public relation con-

The Co-Ed Volleyball Story 

By Don Gilchrest 

Phi Da Di Trounces 

BEACHCOMBER Wednesday, April 22, 1964 Page 3. 

Ah ha! At least there has been one sport which 
was run to perfection. lam speaking of Co-ed Volleyball 
which ended this past week. 

Sixty-eight different players entered the five week 
tourney. Broken down by sexes thirty-three women and 
thirty-five men performed the athletic endeavors with 
great enjoyment. The total number of participants was 
433 including players in the playoff tourney. 

Students also helped with the setting up of officials 
for all the games. The scorekeepers were also members 
ol the various teams. 

The X's, one of the four teams which made the 
post-season playoffs proved they could work toward 
a goal as a team. Although none of the players knew 
each other before the season started , really worked 
well to wind in a tie for second place. 

The value of intramural competition has been 
proven to a great extent in Co-ed Volleyball. Physical 
activity of this type releases a student from the 
emotional and class work tensions. The activity also 
adds to one's extra-curricular aspect oftheschooUife. 

Congratulations to everyone concerned in helping 
out in Co-ed Volleyball.

Glorious Faculty All Stars Defeat 

Phi Da Di By Five 

Friday afternoon, The basket- 
ball game of the year took place 
as our mighty faculty played 
Phi Da Di, the I-m champs. Phi 
Da Di prevailed to win 68-40. 

The Fraternity Men scored 
quickly with Len Emanuelson 
hitting for two baskets before 
the illustrious faculty member 
Mr. McGirt hit for a basket to 
make 4-2. 

Phi Da Di continued to domi- 
nate the first half and led by 
a score of 30-17 at the half. 

As the second half started Mr. 
Dennis 'The Menace' Alber con- 
trolled the ball and tipped the 
ball to Mr. King who was on 
the move for the easy two 
points. This play ignited the 
faculty briefly who counted with 
five more points to narrow the 
gap to 30-24. After this rally Phi 
Da Di took the reins and contin- 
ued to romp the faculty. 

Len Emanuelson led all score- 
rs hitting 35 points for Phi Da 
Di. Mr. McGirt led the faculty 
with 18 points. DG

The 'Comber All Stars' showed 
that they were truly All 
Stars by defeating previously 
undefeated Phi Da Di 93-88, 
Saturday evening. 

In the first three minutes of 
the first half, the All Stars led 
by Mark Lewis, Armand Yates 
and Bob Tauriello pulled away 
to a 17-2 lead before Phi Da 
Di got hot to pull up to deadlock 
the All Stars at 19-19. Phi Da 
Di gained a nine point lead at 
one time but wound up a 44-40 
leader at half time. 

The second half was the same 
type of a nip and tuck battle with 
the All Stars tving the score at 
77-77 with seven minutes remain- 
ing in the game. The all 
around ability of the All Stars 
showed when they over took and 
steadily increased their lead 
they never relinquished. 

A special 'surprise' is planned 
for all students who participate 
in intramurals on today only. 

The surprise will take place 
at approximately 5:00 p.m. 

All participants stay around 
for the big surprise. 

Len Emanuelson was the top 
scorer hitting for 49 points. 
Thirty-one of Len's points came 
in the first half. High man for 
the All Stars was Lou Sansevero 
who hit for 24. Lou had very 
adequate help as Bob Tauriello, 
Bill Wendt, Jim Dickson and 
Dave Lee were all in double fig-

Proposed Campus At Standstill 
Awaiting Completion Of Plans 

"No defmile proposed campus 
project can be established be- 
fore a revision of the campus 
plan," said Dr. Harold C. Man- 
or, PBJC president. 

He added that it would take 
about 45 days to draw up a new 
campus plan and that it should 
be completed before this semes- 
ter is ended. 

During the 1962-63 school year, 
the faculty studied their future 
building and equipment needs. 
Their conclusions were written 
in a report and sent to the 
State Board of Education. 

This year the state sent a 
survey team here to study our 
needs. They concun-ed with the 
faculty plans but introduced 
some new ideas: Fii'st, that our 
campus could upon completion 
take the equivalent of 5,000 
full-time students. We now have 
about 2,200 equivalent students. 
Secondly the team explained 
that the new concept was to pull 
the campus together — to have 
large air-conditioned buildings 
grouped together and peripheral 
parking. Before air-conditioning 
entered the junior college pic- 
ture, our plans had been build- 
ings with wings to allow tree 

air movement and for large 
malls and landscaped grounds, 

"Tlielr (the survey tejim) rec- 
ommendations made it neces- 
sary to restiidy the campus 
plan," stated the president. 
"When the plans are finished 
and the utilities taken care of, 
we will provide for the most 
important needs as indicated by 
the sui-vey team, faculty, and 
college plan." 

After the plans are released, 
the educational specifications 
must be written in great detail 
and submitted to the State 
Board of Education before funds 
are released. Then the archi- 
tects must be appointed and the 
blueprints drawn. The County 
Board of Public Instruction can 
then award the bids. 

Dr. Manor indicated that the 
sewage, water, and drainage 
construction would probably 
have first priority. Other top 
priority proposals as expressed 
by the faculty and sui-vey team 
include additions to or new 
buildings for the hbrary gymna- 
sium, technical department, 
busmess department, student 
service center and parking

An Editorial 

Advisers Flub 

Oh my, some people never learn. Guess who was 
to blame this time? We're referring totheSGA election 
goof of com-se. 

The incompetent, rush, haphazard maimer the 
election, (and specifically the ballot) was handled is 
not much different than last year. 

Nor is it much changed from some other functions 
which the SGA has handled this year. In the freshman 
elections of October, a re-election was forced because 
ballots were improperly prepared. Undue pressure and 
lack of cooperation eventually -culminated in resigna- 
tions after the Ralph Marterie band engagement. 

Consider what could happen if other organizations, 
were to operate as the SGA. Take the I&R Board 
— can you imagine the after-effects if 2,000 to 3,000 
people were to show up for a barbeque and no one 
had remembered to order the chicken? 

Svirely, you're not so naive as to believe that the 
success of the barbeques was due completely to student 

Last year's SGA adviser was criticized for his "let 
the students run it" attitude. Now, just a year later 
the same glaring errors take place. 

What is an adviser for if not to watch over and 
guide students in their 'learning situations.' Someone 
has failed.

What sort of an image do you project? Some

House Sweet 

Associate Editor 

A unique feature of an abode 
IS that the messier and sloppier 
It IS, the more it seems like 
home. Every piece of misplaced 
ciothmg and every strewn book 
and scrape of paper is an 
individuality of the resident I 
mention a residence of a JC 
scholar as an abode since most 
students either lease an apart- 
ment near the campus or com- 

But however sloppy, it is 
home, for it is where you hang 
your toothbrush and leave your 
shoes at the door. It is a castle 
for relaxation, a place to study, 
a place to satisfy hunger and 
a place to sleep — if you don't 
have to study! 

The typical apartment of a JC 
scholar or two or three or four 
consists of three rooms, kitchen, 
bedroom and sitting room or 

extra bedroom. Sometimes these 
are fused into one, and 
always there are many personal 
belongings adorning the 
couches, chairs, shelves and 
tables. When it is lacking in 
beauty, we cheerfully attach to 
the walls framed pictures and 
abstract mosaic designs of ques- 
tionable title. And as always, 
there is never enough closet or 
drawer space. 

Whatever it may lack in quan- 
tity, we take pride in it for it 
is ours. Even though the gas 
stove in the tiny kitchen blows 
up in our face and the front 
window sticks, we proudly put 
our return address on the few 
letters we have tune to send 

We come to identify ourselves 
with number such-and-such on 
what-you-call-it-street — and we 
call it HOME.

Civil Rights 

There have been two letters 
placed in the Beachcomber voic- 
ing opinions on the Civil Rights 

From the tone of the letters 
one may reasonably conclude 
that they were written by white 
Americans, who were generally 
against the Bill. 

I am proud to be a Negro- 
American; and in that Ught 
wish to give my views on the 
proposed legislation. 

The late President's proposal 
if enacted into law, will merely 
give the Negro citizens the 
same rights and privileges all 
other citizens have, and take for 
granted. These are the basic 
human rights which lend to the 
dignity of man. No justification 
can ever be made of a practice, 
whether by law or otherwise 
which allows a business estab- 
lishment, hcensed by the people, 
to open its doors to all races, 
except one, whose color was 
given by the choice of God. 

One can only feel the pains 
of such practices when he is 
a victim. No one else, except 
a Negro would know what it 
means to have this Bill enacted 
into law. 

Now, the people of the United 
States through their Senators 
and Representative have the 
opportunity to prove to the 
world that we are truly demo- 
cratic and truly Christian. 

To defeat the Bill would mean 
that democracy is something we 
preach about, but do not believe

Open Gym 

I am only one of the many 
students who take part in the 
intramural program and thor- 
oughly enjoy it. The question I 
would like answered is, "Why 
aren't the students allowed to 
use the gym when proper super- 
vision is available?" 

Many students feel as I do 
that the gym provides an excel- 
lent opportunity for students to 
participate in activities after 
planned school activities as 
phys. ed. and intramural activ- 
ities have been completed. 
There are many students who 
want to use the gym but are 
turned away by the higher 
physical education administra- 
tors. Some of the instnictors are 
willing to open the gym to 
interested students and ai-e 
probably interested in partici- 
pating themselves. 

I am not trying to tell the 
phys. ed. administration how to 
run their departments but only 
trying to let them know that 
there are anxious students who 
are in favor of having the gym 
available to them.

To PBJC . . . 

Each year hundreds of students enter Palm Beach 
Junior College for the first. time. With the opening of 
Florida Atlantic University within commuting distance, 
enrollment at PBJC will increase even more rapidly. 

Students first become acquainted with the college 
when they take a battery of placement tests required 
of all prospective students. A day is spent in the 
auditorium taking these exams to determine what level 
of work the student will take his first semester. 

In the late summer orientation is held for the 
entering student. Faculty members are introduced and 
newly elected student leaders talk to the entering 
freshmen and acquaint them with the college extra- 
curricular and social activities. 

Soon afterward the student, both new and old, 
endures the hazardous task of registration. When the 
student is finally signed up for all classes he makes 
a quick trip to the bookstore and emerges with an 
armful of books. He is now ready to begin classes. 

Within his first two weeks the incoming student 
becomes familiar with the lounge, the library, and the 
Wishing Well. 

The lounge is the gathering point of students during 
the ten o'clock break. It is the place where old and 
new friends meet. School books are tossed aside and 
conversations of every type imaginable are prevalent 
in the congenial surroundings. 

A hushed silence surrounds the new frosh as he 
■enters the library. The student will make frequent visits 
to this air-conditioned building during his first blistering 
weeks of college. Here he finds an atmosphere conducive 
to study. 

The Wishing Well, located in the corner of the 
administration building is frequented during exam time. 
It is amazing how much moral support the giving of 
a few pennies can make during a test. 

Monies collected from the well are used to support 
an orphan in Italy. 

Students attending PBJC and becoming a part of 
it gain more than an instructional education, they 
become an integrant of one of the fastest-growing, 
highest-rated, and the oldest junior college in the state 
of Florida.

Service Clubs 

Circle K, organized in October, 1952, has guided high school 
students on tours of the college, 'manned' the election booths 
and the X-ray unit, and co-sponsored Open House barbeque 
with Soutliside Kiwanis. The new sidewalk and garden by the 
Social Science Building, and tutoring boys at the County Home 
were the biggest projects this year. 

K-Ettes, organized in October, 1963, has helped Cii'cle K 
in many services, such as the voting booths, TB unit and at 
Open House. The Rehabilitation Center, south of the campus, 
has been the club's main project this year. 

The Vet's Club, comprised of veterans from all branches 
of the service, sponsored the Wishing Well. Tlie money from 
the well helps support an Italian orphan girl. The club promoted 
the Miss Wishing Well contest in conjunction with Spring Frolics, 
and helped clear the picnic area. 

College Dances 

Campus dances vary from tlie costumed stomps in the gymi 
to elaborate formals at Whitehall. 

Early in the year the Anniversary Dance, an annual event 
in which the alumni and faculty join the students, is celebrated. 
For the costiuned Sadie Hawkins Day Dance, the girls ask 
the boys and have a turnabout date. 

Other SGA-sponsored dances included the Valentine Dance, 
St. Patrick Dance and Spring Frolics Dance. 

During the year several social club dances are also held. 

Players Productions 

Each year the PBJC Players present three dramatic 
productions illustrating their eagerness and versatility. 

'Comedy of Errors' the last performance of the season was 
unfolded in front of capacity audiences last week. The challenging 
Shakespearean play brought together the biggest cast ever on 
the PBJC stage. It was given in tribute to the 400th birthday 
of Shakespeare. 

In January, 'Rashomon', a tale of four versions of a brutal 
murder and the ensuring search for the truth cast a spell on 
viewers. 'Dinny and the Witches', a rib-tickling comedy, was 
presented early in the season. 

All three plays were under the direction of Mr. Frank Leahy 
and two included student dancers from the body conditioning 

Blood Drive 

One hundred and forty-one pints of blood were collected 
in the two drives held by Thi Del social clubs this year. 

Held biannually, the drive was started a few years ago 
when members of men's service clubs donated blood for Dean 
Paul Glyim's wife. 

The blood, coordinated by the Palm Beach Blood Bank, 
is available to students, faculty, and members of their families. 

The bank reports that 873 pints of blood have been collected 
since its establishment ten years ago.

Many Opportunities 
Open For All 
Students. . . 

College Showcase 

Palm Beach Junior College's various departments and 
activities have made themselves known to the surrounding area 
through the bi-monthly presentation of College Showcase. The 
half-hour program is seen Sundays at 1:30 p.m. over WPTV, 
Channel 5, and is hosted by speech instructor and TV coordinator, 
Josh Crane. 

Showcase features college life, student activities and recog- 
nizes the achievements of faculty and scholars. 

Social Clubs 

Social club activities begin each semester with rush week, 
the prelude to pledging. Students are invited to attend rush 
parties sponsored by the Inter-Club Council. 

After rushing, bids are given out and students are taken 
in to one of the seven social clubs: Thi Del, Tri Omega, Philo, 
Phi Da Di, Alpha Fidelphia, Chi Sig and Tri Kappa Lambda. 

Then the eight to nine-week pledge period begins. The new 
pledges must hop to the whims of the members, doing everything 
they are requested to do. If the pledge successfully completes 
this period and if he has maintained his grades, he is initiated 
into full membership. 


There are three major student publications on campus. 
Students may work on aU or any of them. 

The Beachcomber, the college newspaper, is a weekly 
publication. Many positions are open in Uie areas of editing, 
reporting, photography, and advertising. 

This year the Galleon, college yearbook, will be published 
in the sim:imer. A variety of staff positions are now available. 

The Media, a Uterary magazine also offers students positions 
to work in. It is published once a year in the late spring. 

Honor Societies 

Four honorary organizations are instituted on campus to 
promote interest and scholarship. 

Phi Theta Kappa is a national arts and science honoraiT 
society. To be a member students must be in the scholastic 
upper ten percent and maintain a 'B' average. 

The Phi Rho Pi honorary society promotes interest in debate, 
oratory, extemporaneous speaking, radio and other special 
activities. Members must have achieved distinction in the speech 
field. They sponsor three plays a year. 

The Phi Rho Pi Alumni Chapter is the first and only alumni 
chapter in the United States. It encourages the arts of speech 
m the community. 

Sigma Epsilon Mu provides recognition for students majonng 
in the fields of science, engineering and mathematics.

Sports Editor 

The physical education department does a tremen- 
dous job of presenting and acquainting the students 
with a variety of sports offered as part of the curricular 
and in the intramural program. 

The courses in this department include a variety 
such as gymnastics for men and body conditioning for 

Sports on the intramural level provide a two fold 
purpose: To promote the competitive attitude which 
is so vital in the world today and to relieve the tensions 
built up by school work and emotions. 

The intramural program has three divisions, men's, 
women's and co-ed division. 

Each of the divisions participate in approximately 
the same sports. The men's competition offers such 
sports as flag tag football, volleyball, tennis, golf,

Looking for a way to 
earn extra money? Here's 
an idea. How 'bout be-

wonderful plastic food

you do the selling in your

earn S50 a week or more. 
And have lots of fun in

that would give such students 
an opportunity for a higher 
education. An advisory commit- 
tee from civic groups was 
formed and University of Flori- 
da officials helped Mr. Watkins 
set up a two-year curriculum 
to meet student needs. The 
faculty consisted of a group of 
teachers with masters degrees 
who were to teach one or two 
extra classes without additional . 
saluiy, and Mr. Watkins as 
dean. The first class was ac- 
cepted in October, 1933. 

Located in the present science 
building of PBIIS, the first class 
graduated in June, 1936, and Dr. 
John I. Leonard became presi- 
dent of the college in Septem- 
ber. PBJC was fully accredited 
bv the Southern Association of 
Colleges and Secondary Schools 

m 1942. 

In December, 1947, Pahn 
Beach became the first junior 
college in Florida approved by 
the State Board of Education for 
participation in the foundation 
program. PBJC moved to its 
second location, 21 acres of 
Morrison Field, in February, 


The Korean conflict meant 
reactivation of the base and 
PBJC was without a home. With 
the help of local newspapers the 
college made its plea for new 
facilities. Again on the move, 
the "httle orphan college," as 
it was nicknamed, moved to the 
town hall in Lake Park in 1951. 
The limited space meant slash- 
ing the enrollment and reducing 
the faculty and staff. 

In the fall of 1956, classes 
moved into the new building in 
Lake Worth. By September, 
1958, the campus had five mod- 
ern buildings and a new presi- 
dent. Dr. Harold C. Manor. The 
College Players opened their 
1960-61 season with "A Streetcar 
Named Desire" in the new 
air-conditioned auditorium. 

Today, with the addition of 
the Humanities Building and the 
Bookstore, the campus boasts 13 
buildings. 3100 day and niRht 
students, and approximately 150 
faculty and staff. 

After 30 years, the "little 
orphan college" has found a 
home and a dream.

"Holders of Associate Degrees

"have the background and

So great and varied are the 
needs of host countries that 
almost any type of background 
and training can be useful; 
from liberal arts to agriculture; 
from secretarial skills and 
coaching to auto repair. 

Most of these programs do not 
require previous knowledge of 
a foreign language. Peace Corps 
training includes thorough lan- 
guage preparation. 

Peace Corps training also 
covers the history, culture, 
economy, geography and poll- 
tics of the areas where the 
Volunteers will serve; Commu- 
nism and the methods by which 
the free world is meeting its 
threat, international affau-s, and 
refresher courses in American 
history and institutions.

A Half Of Thief 


Sports Editor 

Learn by experience has been preached to everyone 
at least once in their life. 

Recently while playing softball, a very disgusting 
incident was happening in the men's dressing room. 
Some person walked in and stole ten dollars from a 
participant's wallet. 

The student who had the money stolen arrived late 
and had no chance to put his valuables under lock 
and key. 

I would advise any student who participates in 
intramurals to do one of three things to prevent this 
type of incident. 

1. Put all valuables under lock and key. 

2. Leave all valuables with the member of the 
Physical Education Staff who is on duty. 

3. Do not bring any valuables to the games. 

In this crime at least theperson was not a complete 
thief, they only stole ten of the twenty dollars in the 

I hope this word is sufficient. 

Managers of the four teams 
participating in the men's 
Softball play-offs are required 
to attend a meeting tomorrow 
at 10:00 a.m. in office three 
of the gym.

rm In The Army Now . . 

By Roger Salmonsen, U.S.A. 
Former Staff Writer 

The bugie rasps as you vaull 
the 15 feet to the frigid barracks 
floor below. It seems like you 
just went to bed, and after a 
glance at your watch you find 
you did. Groping blindly, you 
weave crazily past decked 
bunks and lunge into the latrine. 
You manage to choke out a 
hoarse "good morning" to the 
mass of humanity milling about 

like a stirred up hive of bees. 

Twenty minutes later you 
stand at attention in the stark 
moonlite street as godlike ser- 
geants bark endless, curse- 
filled orders. Harrassments is 
the order of the day. "Right 
face!", "Left face!", "About 
face!" "Will you knuckleheads 
ever learn?" This morning PT- 
PhysicaJ Training- is in the 
form of the dreaded 5 mile run 
designed to build super endur- 
ance. Imagine a thousand 
dazed, shivering recruits double- 
timing in cadence; their bulky 
boots slamming the unyielding 
tundra with jackhammer regu- 
larity. Flashlights pierce the 
utter darkness and project erie 
shadows of dancing figures 
against the rigid pines. 

"Up the hill!" "Down the 
hill!" "Gotta go!" "All the 
way!" pot bellied sergeants 
scream as the goad the panting 
trainees through the misty, un- 
familiar terrain. 

PBJC lingers like a languid 
dream of long ago; a blasting 
contrast to basic training in the 
bland boondocks of South Caro- 
lina. The call for chow rever- 
berates the ranks as the compa- 
ny mobs the messhall. Stomachs 
overflow with excess acid eag- 
arly anticipating the broadside 
of a horse. Small, precious 
amounts slop into tiny mirrored 
trays. Confusion reigns in the 
acrid grease - stained structure. 
"Ram It! Dam It! "Get the 
heck out of here!" The abusive 
cadre have a field 'day. 

"Fix Bayonets!" chants the 
overamplified loudspeaker; On 
Guard!" "Parrj- Ri-ght!" "Left!" 
"Short Thrust!" "Long Thrust!" 
"Rip! Slash! Kill!" The rubber 
tires disintegrate into shreds. 
Over and over you follow the 
same procedure; beads of sweat 
trickle down and sting fogged 
eyes. Your M-l'l boldly topped 
with the barracuda-like blade 
hardly responds to the move- 
ment of pipestem arms cramped 
into numbness. "Give me an ag- 
gressive growl men!" yells the 
instructor. Animal sounds hideo- 
eruits. "I can't hear you!", 
taunts the instructor "GGGGG 
can't hear you!" a deafening 
roar trembles the eardrums as 
faces blush in strain. You're told 
to gi-owl because of its unnerv- 
ing effect on the barbarians from 
the i!.ast, who think Americans 
are too civilized. 

The silhouetted targets on the 
well manicured rifle range al- 
most fade into the sun- 
shimmering distance. The 
squawk boxes clamor... "Ready 
on the right, Ready on the left. 

lock one magazine load, watch 
your firijig lanes, commence. . . 
filing!" A thunderous barrage 
shatters the quiet afternoon. The 
elusive targets ai'e reluctant to 
''Die" as splattered dust clouds 
the horizon; an excited trainee 
curses when he vainly tries to 
insert a magazine in backwards. 
Mistakenly you fhe at each 
others targets and qiiickly re- 
ceive the wrath dished out by 
frustrated lieutenants. 

After the exhaustive twenty- 
mile hike, you pivot nerveously 
behind the grenade - protec tive 
wafl. A grim-faced corporal 
carefully places the 3.5 frag- 
mented bomb into sweated 
palms; a siren wails the all 
clear signal. "Pull the pin and 
get rid of it." screeched the 
eoporal who is already prone 
and spread eagle on the saw- 
dust. One man hestiates, ten 
freezes; the deadly device rolls 
playfully out of his hand. The 

corporal, wild with rage, man- 
ages to fling the hissing object 
over the wall just as it explodes. 
Bassmouthed, the agitated NCO 
screams; "Stupid Clamheaded 

Lengthening shadows cau- 
tiously infiltrate the company 
area when you llnally stumble 
into the humid, vally-Forgc type 
barracks. Tonight the buildings 
will have to be antiseptically 
clean; boots spit-polished until 
they dazzle; floors waxed to a 
glass like finish. The infernal 
dust annihilated by the com- 
bined efforts of the commode 
commandos and the 5th buffing 
division armed with sponge and 
brush. Somehow the job is fin- 
ished in time lor lights-out. Con- 
vulsingly you scale into the 
bunk and sMp silkenly beneath 
the sheets. In a moment a 
coma-like trance exterminates 
consciousness . . . The bugle

Senators Chosen 
In SGA Election 

Twelve senators were chosen 
by freshmen for the fall temi 
in a SGA re-election Wednesday. 
The previous election was thrown 
out because of invalid ballots. 

Although the polls closed 
Wednesday at 3:30 the final 
count was not revealed that 
night as per previous planning. 
According to Frank Stillo, SGA 
President, two counts were taken 
but they did not equal and 'every- 
one went home.' He said the 
ballots would be totaled again 

The Beachcomber by spe-

results, but ballot - counters 
just couldn't stay after 5:00 
p.m. to make a final tally. 
This is not the SGA's fu-st 

error in relation to the elections. 
In the executive council elec- 
tions special arrangements were 
made through Mr. McCreight, 
public relations, to have the 
results sent to local news me- 
dia. Although the elections took 
place on a Wednesday, the SGA 
did not notify the mass media 
until the following Monday. 
A second error was exemp- 
lified when the senatorial bal- 
lots had to be destroyed and 
a new election scheduled. This 
election mistake chalks up 
number three. 

The idea of a student senate 
was voted in by students when 
they accepted the new SGA 
Constitution in March. 
"T?his body has the power to 
make all laws necessary for 
carrying out powers vested by 
the Constitution. 

New MD Card' In Fall

bers, and James Baugher, and

Students will receive the ID 
cards during registration for 
about 50 cents. 

The H) cards will be needed 

to cash checks, sell books, at- 
tend student activities, check 
out books from the library and 
for any other activity in which 
a student may need to be 
identified as a college student. 

The student's name, local and 
home address, student number, 
signature, date of issue, and 
special event code are tenalive- 
ly to be included on the card. 

The ID cards will be issued 
each term. A definite procedure, 
in case of loss of card, is yet 
to be determined. 

Open House Successful; 
Many Organizations Helped 

PBJC's Eighth Annual Open 
House was successful according 
to administration. A crowd of 
2,500 was estimated. 

Visitors flooded the campus to 
view the many activities and 
demonstrations and faculty 
members were on hand to ex-

Politicians, taking advantage 
of the county wide gathering, 
swarmed over the crowds pass-

An Editorial 


Got A Name? 

Just this week the 'Comber has moved into a new 
building. The SGA, ISCC, and Galleon will join us. 
If you ask a student what building we're in, he replys, 
"Why, the 'Old Music Building'." 

Now we all know that although the building once 
housed the music department, it no longer quarters 
any music groups. It's offices are filled by leading 
student organizations and it will soon hold the student 
lounge. Why then, should we continue to call it the 
'Old Music Building?' 

We're not going to be so egotistical as to suggest 
calling it the Beachcomber Building, but neither are 
we going to be so simple as to accept a title such 
as 'The Student Center'. 

Seems to us, that with a student body as large 
and as diversified as ours, we could come up with 
a dignified or unusual name that would fit our build- 

In the meantime, leave your suggestions with us 
in the 'Old Music Building'. 


OOOH's And AAAH's 

We like the new Stars and Stripes, which fly s above 
the college. Truthfully we were going to suggest that 
the 'old tattered' be burned, but somebody beat us 
to the draw. 

Whooppee! We've heard that IBM scheduling is out 
for next year. We'll check with the president and 
confirm it. 

We were disappointed to hear that Elliot Roosevelt, 
second son of FDR, couldn't make it to campus. We're 
sure he'd have had some interesting White House 
experiences to relate.

Wednesday, I packed to leave 
home — that is, I gathered my 
belongings to leave the Beach- 
comber office. On the second 
thought, I am now sitting in the 
Beachcomber office, and what 
I left is now Mr. Tate's office 
in the Finance Building. 

Anyhow, on that glorious day 
of transfer, I came to school 
equipped with weak biceps and 
a Campbell's soup carton. Dur- 
ing the break, out mighty forces 
were convinced that 'now was 
the time'. 

And so we began to leave 
home. My desk drawers, long 
filled with mementos of past 
issues, photo assignment sheets, 
newsprint and scrap paper be- 
gan to acquhe a strange de- 
serted air as I ruthlessly threw 
things away. My soup carton 
filled slowly with items and 
knic-knacs I just couldn't leave 
behind. My year's work gath- 
ered in a cardboard box. 

By pre-arrangement and agree- 
ment with the Galleon, the 

Beachcomber was to receive 
two wastebaskets and these 
were quickly filled with the 
staff's white elephants. 

The staff, augmented by in- 
dustrious friends, removed 
drawers from desks and cabi- 
nets, and with bent backs 
stooped to the dubious joy of 
transferring and rearranging 
the furniture. Excitement in- 
creased and gained momentum 
as we worked. We scurried 
between buildings, everyone a 

Stares from passers-by added 
to our discomfort, but when we 
asked them to help, they 
promptly disappeared. Life as a 
mover is certainly hard and 
lonely work. 

The placing of the thurd type- 
writer on the stand and the last 
ash tray on the sport's desk 
brought forth a sigh of relief. 
Moving day was over. 

N.B. You are cordially invited 
to inspect the new Beachcomber 
location. Won't you stop in?

To The Editor 

For the past school year 
PBJC has been at a "social 
standstill" Most of the activi- 
ties I enjoyed as a freshman 
have floated away into oblivion. 
This co-ed college has become 
more like a convent for recluse 
nuns. What is worse is the fact 
that all or most attempts to 
pump some life into our social 
corpse have been trampled to 
death by both students and 
faculty. Such is the case of the 
Spring Frolics. I have heard 
some students say, "It was a 
flop." and Mrs. Myatt, the 
Freshman Class adviser, has 
termed it a present and future 

I disagree! The Frolics was 
a -success, and in more ways 
than one. There was more 
school spirit shown there than 
I have seen for a long tune. 

Those who ran the booths put 
almost eight hours into con- 
struction and as many hours 
into their management. Tlic fac- 
ulty donated time and energy 
to the project, each adding to 
the success. The turnout was 
not as large as the crowd on 
the mountain, but this was only 
the beginning, the first Spring 
Frolics. It was a giant step in 
filling our great social gap! 

No matter what is written or 
said, there will always be some 
diehards who will temi any 
social activity as a flop, wheth- 
er it be a small informal dance 
or the Folhes Bergere. They 
miss out because, usually more 
goes on than is planned (or 
allowed). To these I say, "T.S." 
(Tough situation)."

The Gym 


Sports Editor 

In last week's issue of the Beachcomber a letter 
appeared concerning an open gym. I hope to clarify 
many of the reasons for not using the gym after hours. 

At the present time the gym has classes from 8:00 
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every day and also one class which 
is taught on Thursday night. 

Another very important reason for not having extra 
use of the gym is the intramurals which have taken 
up at least 15-20 hours a week. 

The PE faculty members also should be permitted 
to see their families at least once in a while. As it 
now stands, the faculty members carry just about as 
many hours as that of the students. The faculty also 
stay around to supervise the intramurals which the 
students gratefully appreciate. 

What suggestions can be made to alleviate such 
a terrible situation? 

The first suggestion is to have a faculty member 
devote full time to the extra use of the gym by the 
students. This would mean either getting a new faculty 
member or losing one which already teaches health 
and physical education. 

Another suggestion would be for the city or county 
to provide students with basketball courts and a playing 
areas as is done with the shuffleboard courts for the 
older population. 

Next year the gym will carry even a larger load 
and will not be available for use by the students, so 
it looks as though the gym is closed for extra activities 
for the near future.

Jimmy Jackson, PBJC Student 
Is World Champion Water Skier 

Look around you — the guy 
sitting next to you may be a 
world celebrity. Jimmy "Flea" 
Jackson, a Delray Beach stu- 
dent at PBJC, is a National, 
International and World Cham- 
pion water skier. 

Just three weeks ago, while 
skiing in the United States 
World Water Ski Tournament, 
Jimmy made a high flying leap 
of 150 feet to set a new world's 

Jim is a short, sturdy young 
fellow who didn't begin swim- 
ming until he was 17. He started 
the sport to combat a lifelong 
illness with asthma, and a 
neighborhood friend insisted he 
learn to ski. "I skied," said 
Jim, "but like every beginner. 
I had ray share of ups and 

It was not until 1957 that Jim 
began to take skiing seriously. 
He started training in earnest

competitors nicknamed Jim. 
"Flea," because he was the 
smallest contestant, but could 

iump a whale of a distance. The 
name has stuck. 
"Water skiing on the cham- 
pionship level is not so much a 
matter of size and strength. 
Rather, it is a test of mental 
concentration," says the cham- 
pion water skier. "Once you get 
the perfection of form all of the

good with his brain, for he is 
three times National Jump 
Champion, three times North- 
American champion, twice In- 
ternational Champion, twice All- 
Ameiican Champion and twice 
World Champion. He is also the 
current holder of the North 
American, International, Aus- 
tralian Masters and World 
jumping records. 

Jumping is not Jimmy's only 
wmning feat. He also has won 
wide recognition in slalom, 
tricks and double skiing. 

In September, 1963, the little 
champ competed in the World 
Water Ski Championships at 
Vichy, France, as a member of 
the United States team. He was

During 19fi3, he scored a slam 
comparable to the "big three" 
in golf by winning the Masters, 
National, and World Jump titles 
— the first all three have been 
held by one person. 

During the summer and early 
fall of 1963, Jim was touring the 
world and performing in almost 
every countiy as a member of 
the United States Water Ski 
Team of which he has twice 
been captain and twice No. 1 

He has worked in Australia 
with the Asthma Appeal Foun-

Board. He works in an advisory

and capabilities of the fLnn's

The new sports program 
would be under the diiection of 
the faculty advisory committee, 
now headed by Mr. Souther- 

"The SGA's pm-pose in pre- 
senting the proposal," said Mid- 
dleton, "is the fact that it is 
needed and the students want 
it. We have many fine athletes 
who should have the chance to 
compete with other schools." 

The proposal states that the 
intercollegiate progi"am would 
be on a one year probationary 
status. It is anticipated that 
cheerleaders be incorporated in 
the program. 

Dorm-Type Apartment 
Planned Near Campus 

Construction of new dorm-type 
apartments near the campus, 
approved by the County Zoning 
Commission, is to begin soon. 
Plans call for completion by 

Apartments must have a min- 
imum living area of 325 square 
feet for one or two persons and 
another 100 square feet for each 
additional person. 

Some zoning requii-eraents 
call for the following: 

Dormitories must provide a 

minimum of 100 square feet 
living area for each sleeping 
room and 100 square feet or 
more for each sleeping accom- 

Parking minimum s are one 
space for every two sleeping ac- 

Regulations define student 
apartments, student dormito- 
ries, rooming units, dwelling 
units and living areas and limits 
such student housing to within 
"two miles of an "accredited 
mstitution of liigher learning."

An Editorial 


$$ And Sense 

By ROBERT E, McAllister 
Editorial Writer 

A congressional investigation is not necessaiy, but 
a localized_StudejiX^Yernment inqui^^ at least 

be made in regard to what is happening to the money 
that canipus organizations are requesting and receiv- 

There is no doubt that certain clubs on campus 
are receiving funds from the Student Government 
association and failin g _t^o show an^'_ visable use for 
these mo netary allotments ._ There is no doubt that tire 
funds are not being extorted or that anysimilar drastic 
situation exists because the money must be returned 
at the end of the semester if it is not used. The reason 
for concern lies not in the question of sinister activity 
in respect for the money, but in the overt fact that 
by these clubs not using the money, it becomes- 
stagnant. Student Government money gi-ants are 
difficult enough to realize without having organi- 
zations keeping it out of circulation and thereby 
depriving other clubs from its benefit. Money 
never works unless it is in circulation. 

A solution to the problem would be to simply require 
each organization who receives moneyfrom the student 
government to produce a report describing what is being 
done with the money. The treasurer of student 
government should review all club journals each month 
and determine exactly what is being done with the 
funds that he authorizes for campus organizations. 

'' We also urge the SGA to work a fair and equitablel 
I Berjcent_SYStenipfalloting funds as mentioned in earlier I 
editions of the Beachcomber. 

Room For More 

We've heard a rumor that anew campus publication 
is to start before the end of the yeai". The mimeogi-aphed 
paper would be titled Action and Reaction. 

The Beachcomber hopes that the new publication 
organization will pubhsh the names of their staff, follow 
the canons of Journalism and confirm that they have 
the proper training and background to publish such 
a media. 

We beUeve there is room on campus for other 
publications provided their ideals and operation are 
solidly based. 

We cordially invite the staff to stop by the 
Journalism Office and pick up copies of the Journalists 
Creed and Canons of Journalism. These are the 
guides by which all ethical media are lead. 

New Activity Hour 
Scheduled For Fall 

The fifth hour, between 12:10 
and 1:10, Monday through Fri- 
day, has been set aside as 
acli\-ity hour for the fall term. 

Because there is to be no 
mid-morning break as we enter 
year around operation, all club 
meetings will be planned during 
this fifth hour. 

Regular classes are to be 
lightly scheduled during this 

horn- and students who axe 
interested in participating in 
extra-curricular activities 

should plan around the classes. 
A list of the days in which clubs 
meet will be available at regis- 

"Students may also note that 
this is an ideal lunch hour," 
lommented Dean Glynn.

6/^5 o' fluff 


By Flo Felty 
Associate Editor 

Throughout the coiu'se of his- 
tory, the fleshy, ustially round, 
fruit commonly known as the 
apple has cai-ved out its niche. 
From the biological genus, 
"Malus", the apple has been 
recorded from the beginnings of 
man to the modern world as 
an important object. 

Adam and Eve would not be 
recognized today, for that mat- 
ter neither would we, if it had 
not been for the apple. The 
tempting fruit, dangling cai-e- 
lessly from the tree caused an 
event from which the modern 
world evolved. 

The Romans had a word for 
it, mala. The gods in mythology 
used the golden apple as a prize 
for the most beautiful woman. 
A battle -royale among the wom- 
en for the trophy resulted in 
bribei-y, kidnapping and the 
Trojan War. 

Sir Isaac Newton, 1642-1727, 
discovered through our inani- 
mate friend, the apple, that the 
change in velocity, over the 

cime taken for the change, 
equals 4 feet per second, over 
'/2 seccnd, equals 8 feet per 
second squared. 

Today, this sumpttious fruit is 
eaten, cooked and mashed for 
such cupboard delicacies as ap- 
ple butter and apple sauce. 
Apple pie a la mode is a 
favorite dessert of many. 

Children bribe theh grade 
school teachers with a rosy red 
apple on the day of a lest. In 
college, professors attempt to 
instmct uninterested scholars on 
the "Malus" intricate parts in- 
cluding the calyx, finiculus, and 

Since the effect of the apple 
has been so predominate on 
earth, siu'ely life on other plan- 
ets, if there is some, depends 
on this fruit, an almost necessi- 
ty of life. 

How much more effect can 
the apple have on humans? By 
the way, what's purple and 
wants to conquer the world? 
Alexander tlie Grape.

College Forum 

Bumper Stickers 

Students won't have to gum 
up their windshield next year 
with parking stickers. They can 
gum up their bumpers instead. 
Since the Florida state law 
prohibits window decals, bump- 
er strips have been ordered for 
next year. 

The present color code is to 
be retained. Faculty and staff 
are to be identified by color, 
no lettering. Strips will be 
placed on the left rear bump- 

The strips are good for as 
long as the student is em-olled 
in PBJC, If a new vehicle is 
purchased, another permit must 
be obtained.

The annual Vets and Mature 
Student Picnic will be held

In omitting the context of my 
comments on the Freshman 
Fair, the Beachcomber has ob- 
scured my main points. The 
Fah was certainly not a total 
loss; few things are. And those 
who attribute its so-called "Fail- 
ures" to a sinister faculty plot 
against student fun and esprit 
de corps may not be aware of 
some factors about their school 
and theh times. 

The "poor school spirit" so 
often decried at this college, a 
disease too readily blamed on 
sluggish, indifferent students, 
may well be a chronic com- 
plaint which no campus Kildare 
or wonder-di-ug schoolwide 
events can cure. Our junior 
college is a non-residential, two- 
year institute for communters, 
with diverse backgrounds and 
loyalties, en route from hereto 
somewhere else. A majority of 
students hold jobs, many work- 
ing eight hours a day. They 
have limited energy, money, 
and time. Their support of col- 
lege activities is necessarily 

And is the rah-rah, pennant- 
waving school spu'it, which, 
even at universities, in the face 
of the- rising cost and academic 
burdens, is fast giving way to 
a more sober mood, the kind 
of spirit we actually want? Or 
is it a sphit of good will and 
understanding in each of us for 
om- fellow students and teach- 
ers, a desire to serve the higher 
aim of enriching the mind for 
which college really exist? This 
place may not be Hollywood's 
idea of college. It may not be 
rich, famous, or large. But it's 
large enough for the type of 
school sphit tliat matters most. 
We can have this kind any time 
if we only want it enough.

Co-Ed Track Meet 


Sports Editor 

With almost the ideal intramural progiam here, 
this editor feels that there was only one major sport 
in which the students were not given a chance to exhibil 
their skills. The exception was a trackandfield meet. 

If this school started an annual track and field 
meet such as the swimming meet, it would probably 
be received as well as the swimming meet. 

Some of the evenjs which should be well accepted 
and actively participated in are the 100 yard dash, 
220, 440 and 880 yard runs, one mile run, mile relay, 
discus, shot put and other major track and field 

Would this track and field event be feasible next 

In this editor's opinion this type of intramural event 
would be feasible if handled in the same manner as 
the swimming meet. The main arrangement would be 
the co-operation of the physical education staff of PBJC 
and the staff of Lake Worth High School. 

I hope that our PE staff will try to better the 
intramural program by adding a Co-ed Track and Field 
Meet next year.

Joan Gossett, JC Student 
Crowned Queen In Colombia 

Miss Joan Gossett, Florida 
Dairy Princess and PBJC stu- 
dent has just returned from a 
trip to Columbia where she 
reigned over a cattle show and 
was crowned queen of a fair. 
The first few days of Miss 
Gossett's nine day ^isit were 
spent in Bogota. She and her 
chaperone, Margaret Board- 
man, met and lunched with 
dignitaries of the city and 
American Embassy and were 
given tours of the capital 

Miss Gossett was especially 
impressed by the beauty of the 
cathedral and churches in the 
city. She also toured many 
farms and dairies surrounding 
the capital which she describes 
as beautiful, green and fertile. 

After four days of partying 
and touring in Bogota, the 
Dairy Princess was to fly to 
Tulua. "I met Miss Columbia 
at the airport and we traveled 
together. Eight miles from 
Tulua our airplane hit a stomi 
and almost crashed. We were 
forced to land at Cali and had 
to talce a taxi to Tulua. It 
was only after we arrived at 
Tulua that we learned of the 
'bandldos' who had been stop- 
ping traffic along the road 
from Cali to Tulua and killing 
the travelers," said the Prin- 

She said over 400 people 
waited for four hours for their 
plane to land at the airport. 
When they finally arrived via 
taxi a whole procession was 
waiting for them. 

Willie in Tulua she stayed in 
Major Castille's house which 
was surrounded by a police 
force. She attended parties ev- 
ery evening, met queens and 
dignitai'ies and was followed by 
TV, radio and newspaper re- 

The Florida Dairy Princess 
rode two hours on a float, 
gave three talks over the 
radio, was crowned queen of 
the fair and attended a syndi- 
cate's party. 

During her stay at Tulua she 
also gave out awai'ds, drove a 
tractor and met three peace 
corp volunteers — A Japanese, 
white and Negro — who lived 

"I went into the market place 
and people gathered around me. 
They asked 'what is such an 
elegant girl doing in the market 
place?' Evidently none of the 
other queens ever visited the 
market," said Miss Gossett. 
"All the people of Columbia 
were nice and kind and they 
gave me a wonderful recep- 
tion, she added. 
"I don't exactly know how I 
was selected to go, said the 
Florida Princess. "I know Co- 
lumbia wTote the United States 
and asked for a queen to reign 
over a cattle show. The request 
was given to the agrictiltural 
department and they asked the 
American Dairy Princess. But 
the American Princess was 
making a fUm in Hollywood, so 
they asked me."

A Yearns Summary 


That Was The Year That Was 



With only a few days left, 
we've come to the end of the 
1963-64 year — a year of hoote- 
nanies, dances and political un- 

The Intramural and Recreat- 
ional Board Hootenany and feed 
in early September kicked off 
a trail of events which contin- 
ued throughout the year. 

October saw the beginning of 
the Dollars for Scholars cam- 
paign which wound up with over 
S4000. Plans for a picnic were 
begun and rehearsals were und- 
erway for the first drama play 
of the season, Dinny and the 

An anniversary dance, com- 
memorating 30 years of sei-vice 
took piace in November. Miss 
Linda Knapp reigned as queen. 
Tlie Hollywood Hootenany , spon- 
sored by the SGA, was attended 
by some 2,500 people. Casey 
Wheeler and Elaine Hopkins 
reigned over the Sadie Hawkins 
Oay Dance. 

December brought forth the 

sec Christmas Festival of 

Jports. Men and women's social 

clubs staged football games to 

collect funds for needy families. 

Rashamon, a PBJC players 
production was presented in 
Januarj'. Tlie Dane Talent Show 
took time out from their World 
tour to perform at tlie PBJC 

The on again-off again' en- 
gagement of the Ralph Marterie 
Orchestra for the Febiuary Val- 
entine Ball spurred political up- 
heaval in the SGA. Bnice Anmi- 
eiman resigned as SGA Presi- 
dent and a loopholed constitu- 
tion had to be inteipreted. Joe 
Caudill resigned as SGA vice 
president to i^un for president 
but die SGA council appointed 
Frank Stillo. Two sopliomore 
class offices were left vacant 
because of grades and a change 
of schools. Duke Barwick filled 
the presidential liole and Ron 
Simpson was appointed vice 
president. Eventually Alan 
French was named SGA vice 
president to fill that vacancy. 

'Year round operation' was 
announced in March to begin 
with the fall temi. The new 
system corresponds with univer- 
sity trimesters. PBJC students 
trooped to the polls and adopted 
a newly revised SGA constitu- 
tion which eliminated class offi- 
cers and initialed a senate. The 
wearing of green was featured 
at a St. Patrick's Day Dance. 

Six events were featured in 
a weekend of Spring Frolics 
during April. Kathy Lceper was 
crowned Miss Galleon. Pat

In Memory Of 

John F. Kennedy 

Today marks the birthdate of John F. Kennedy. He would 
have been 47 had not an assassin's bullet cut him down. A 
pai-chment copy of the following letter is being I'onvarded to 
the Kennedy Memorial Library. In his memoiy we print exei-pts 
of it here. 
December 10, 1963 
To Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy: 

While the world still turns on its axis and most Americans 
have returned to the business of living as they must, a sense 
of outrage still pervades the Palm Beach Junior College campus 
and the Palm Beaches, where your late husband was a friend 
and neighbor in addition to being President of the United States. 
His frequent visits to this area will be sorely missed. m.> 
untimely passing seem.s a personal thing to the people of this 
area who knew him. 

The young men in the Circle K at Palm Beach Junior 
College — a collegiate service club of Kiwanis International 
— wish to honor and pay tribute to your late husband and 
our beloved President, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, a man admired 
and respected for his creative mind, his vision, his courage, 
his immeasurably outgiving spirit, and for his willingness to 
strive and work for tlie good of others, never sparing himself 

. . . The spirit of freedom and intellectual inquiry lives 
on more robustly in the hearts and minds of those who were 
pri\'ileged to know John F. Kennedy. His legacy is that of 
a strong faith in democratic principles . . 

. . . Truly, John F. Kennedy had personal charm, courage, 
integrity, and this country and the world are the richer for 
it. The men in Circle K International at Palm Beach Junior 
College feel that he exemplified in his eveiyday conduct of 
the presidency and in his personal life the theme of Circ'e 
K International for the year 1963-64 — INDrvaoUAL DIGNITY. ' 

In tliis hour of national mourning — and in mis tragic 
hour of personal bereavement for you, your children and the 
Kennedy family — the men of Cu-cle K would like to present 
you widi a token of their appreciation for the outstanding 
e.xample of mdividual dignity bequeathed to the people of 
America and the worid by your late husband 

. . .It is our fervent hope and prayer that vour husband's 
extraordmary example of individual dignity wHl be a source 
of mspiraUon to people everywhere for generations to come. 

Very respectfully yotu-s. 
The Entire Membership of 
Circle K International at 
Palm Beach Junior Collegie 

the year, Comedy of Errors. 

The annual Open House with 
an estimated 2,500 viewers was 
held in May. Visitors flooded the 
campus to see the many exhibi- 
tions and demonstrations. 

New buildings and constmc- 
tion have also had an affect 
upon PBJC students. The con- 
struction of the Humanities 
Building provided artists and 
musicians with a new home. 
The new bookstore allows stu- 
dents to help themselves and 
pay on the way out. Traffic 
congestion has subsided with the 
completion of the access road 
and soon the four laning of 
Congress will keep traffic prob- 
lems to a minimum. 

Next week final exams will 
end the yeai' for many and 
Graduation will be the biggest 
event of June as sophomores 
depai-t with wise minds and 
fond memories of Palm Beach 
Junior College. 

Galleon Arrives

Galleon, PBJC yearbook, is 
scheduled to arrive on campus

Miss Bennett stated that there 
is no money for mailing the

I-C Sports Plans 
Up For Approval 

Before intercollegiate sports 
can be introduced to PBJC, the 
plans must be approved by the 
faculty, the college advisory 
board and the county school 
board, reported Frank SlUlo, 
president of the SGA. 

"With luck, we should have 
'sports' next year. If we can 
get the approval of all the 
people involved; if we can find 
feasible solutions for all the 
problems involved, we can have 
'sports" next year," said Stillo. 
"That's a lot of ifs." 

Intercollegiate sports, Stillo 
went on, "has to get off the 
ground in the fu-st year with 
a complete program in order to 
be a success."

'Movable Feast' 

A Movable Feast by Ernest 
Hemingway. New York: 
Charles Scribner's Sons, 1964. 
211 pgs. Photographs. 

"A Movable I'east" by Ernest 
Hemingway is a series of 
sketches of life in Paris during 
the 20 's. 

Well-known writers, such as 
James Joyce and Gertrude 
Stein, enter and exit through- 
out the book like characters 
in a play. Paris seems to fit 
the generation of the 20's as 
it has no other. It was the 
"haven" for authors, poets 
and playwrights. 

"Feast" is written like a 
diai-y of impressions on people 
and places, with bits of dialogue 
thrown in. The city and its 
people are pictured as only 
Hemingway could see them. 
Much of the book is devoted 
to Hadley and Ernest Heming- 
way's friendship with F. 
Scott Fitzgerald and his wife. 
Though much has been writ- 
ten about Fitzgerald's tragic 
marriage to Zelda, Heming- 
way gives new insight into 
their lives. 

Though the late writer is 
noted for his novels, he uses 
his talent to bring Paris to life. 
It left this writer with a feeling 
that our generation has missed 
something great. 

Hemingway said, "That was 
the end of the first pai-t of 
Paris. Paris was never to be the 
same again . . . There is never 
any ending to Paris and the 
memory of each person who h;is 
lived in it differs from that of 
any other . . . .This is how 
Paris was in the early days 
when we were very poor and 
very happy." — JL 



Pay Fines Now 

Dr. Wayne White, dean of 
men, urges students to pay all 
traffic and parking fines before 
they leave school. 

Dr. White stated that no 
grades will be issued to students 
who owe fines. No reconunenda- 
tions for colleges or jobs can 
be sent until paj-nieuls me 

Merriwell Library 
Given To PBJC 

A Merriwell Library, the com- 
plete set of 245 thickbook dime 
novels, has been given to the 
library of PBJC by Edwiuxl G. 
Levy, Palm Beach winter resi- 
dent for 18 years. 

The novels cover activities of 
Frank Merriwell, his son, and 
his brother Dick at Fairdale 
Academy and Yale Univcrsily. 
Frank has a new type hero 70 
years ago. Created by Gilbert 
Patten writing under the pen 
name of Burt L. Standish, he 
was depicted as lui outstanding 
athlete of unblemished chia'ac- 
ter. He replaced earlier blood 
and tlnindcr heroes in the affec- 
tions of such American youths 
as Woodrow Wilson, Babe Ruth, 
Al Smith and Wendell WiUkic 
who were his avid fans. 

These popular publications 
dominated the field of best 
selling fiction in the United 
States for a generation. They 
kre a significant phenomenon in 
the history of American writing 
and provide an important source 
for historians and literary cri- 
tics studying the nineteenth cen- 
tury and its affects on Ameri- 
can civilization. 

Mr. Levy has made the collec- 
tion of dime novels an avocation 
for 50 years. He has collected 
two other complete sets of Mer- 
riwell which he presented to 
.pr3.ndcis^arid, .Hale . Universities.

Mrs. Peed 
PBJC Prof 
Writes Book 

Mi-s. Dorothy Peed, PBJC 
English instructor, has just 
completed a book titled America 
Is People and Ideas to be 
published this summer. 

"The book is an orientation 
to many of the college currlcu- 
lar courses you may include in 
a liberal education," said Mrs. 
Peed. It is developed to help 
freshman learn as soon as pos- 
sible the many subjects you can 
study in college. 

The idea of a book began in 
1949 when IMrs. Peed was in- 
structing at a private school in 
California. She has been work- 
ing on it for the past 15 years. 

Among the many articles in 
the book are included one by 
President Lyndon Johnson, a 
poem by Watson B. Duncan, III, 
and a lecture by Dr. Donald H. 
Andrews of the department of 
chemistry at FAU. 

"The book is built entu-ely on 
my teaching and what the stu- 
dents and I have been doing," 
commented Mrs. Peed. "It in- 
cludes quotes of students from 
many of my classes." 

"Mrs. PhiUips and I plan to

Students wishing records sent to 
other colleges must fill out a 
request slip in the main office.

at the same time, the price is 
one dollar for the first and 50 
cents for each additional copy. 

Any student leaving immedi- 
ately for summer school should

to return to JC in the fall, he 
does not need a transcript. He 
should get a letter of good

college, a student should give 
his full name, dates of attend-

''El Condor" To Be Presented
